1. Why does HU have a programme selection check?
The programme selection procedure, in addition to other programme selection activities such as attending open days and orientation days, helps you to choose a degree programme that suits you best and gives you a greater chance of completing the degree programme successfully. HU wants students to enrol in a degree programme that fits them. It limits the chance of you dropping out and maximises your chances of success.

2. Is the programme selection check obligatory?
The following applies to all of our full-time bachelor's and ad-programmes without selection:

  • You are obliged to complete and return your electronic intake form in time (on 1 June 2017* at the latest!). Your application for enrolment cannot be finalised without the electronic intake form.
  • Attending a matching day is obligatory.

Our full-time bachelor's degree programmes with selection have a different admission procedure. To find out more, please visit www.numerusfixus.hu.nl (in Dutch only). 

3. Which degree programmes involve a programme selection check?
The following applies to all of our full-time bachelor's and ad-programmes without selection:

  • You are obliged to complete and return your electronic intake form in time (on 1 June 2017* at the latest!). Your application for enrolment cannot be finalised without the electronic intake form.
  • Also attending a matching day is obligatory. 

Our full-time bachelor's degree programmes with selection or have a different admission procedure. To find out more, please visit www.numerusfixus.hu.nl (in Dutch only).

4. Is it possible to apply for multiple degree programmes and multiple programme selection checks?
It is possible to apply for more than one degree programme. In that case, you will be taking part in the programme selection procedure for each degree programme separately – unless the admission is based on a selection procedure. Our full-time bachelor's degree programmes with selection have a different admission procedure.

5. What happens to the data from the electronic intake form?
Your answers to the questions in the intake form can be used in (group) meetings during the matching day. The details will also be used by your study career counsellor during your counseling sessions in the first year of your studies. The teachers of your degree programme who are involved in your programme selection procedure and counseling also have access to the information. Furthermore, we will use the anonymised data for scientific studies into the factors that play a role in study success.

6. What is the difference between a orientation day and a matching day?

  • You attend an orientation day before you apply. During an orientation day you attend one or more classes, lectures, or practical sessions. You can ask the teachers and students questions and so experience how it is to be a student enrolled in the specific degree programme. You will have the opportunity to explore the programme at a deeper level.
  • A matching day is obligatory and takes place after you have applied. The main difference from an orientation day is that you will now also have to demonstrate your interests and motivation so that we can see whether there is a 'match' between you and the degree programme and give you our recommendation. The department may also send you preparatory assignments. It is a mutual introduction.

Both days complement one another and are offered to help you make a well-considered choice.

7. What if, after the programme selection procedure, I find out that a degree programme does not suit me?
Have you applied for a higher education programme by 1 May 2017 through Studielink, but would you like to change programmes? Fortunately, your studies have not started as yet. You can still switch after 1 May 2017. However, please do so as soon as possible (and before 1 September 2017), so that you do not miss the matching day for your new degree programme. Also, do not forget to modify your application in Studielink.

Do you have doubts about the degree programme you have chosen? If so, contact our Centre for Study Choice. They will be happy to help you choose another study programme.

8. When is my enrolment finalised?
Your enrolment in a full-time bachelor's or ad-programme without selection is finalised when:

  1. You have applied through Studielink on 1 May 2017 at the latest.
  2. You have completed and returned your electronic intake form in time (on 1 June 2017* at the latest!).
  3. You have attended the matching day.
  4. If you have met all the other conditions for enrolment.

9. How do I register for a matching day?
More information about the registration for the matching day will be included at the end of the intake form.

10. Is the matching procedure also applicable to 21+ applicants?
Yes, the matching procedure also applies to 21+ applicants. You are obliged to complete and return your electronic intake form before the deadline and to attend a matching day.

11. I have been enrolled as a student in the current academic year and want to switch to another degree programme next year. Until when can I apply for my new programme?
HU students who would like to switch programmes can apply until 1 September 2017 for a place in any full-time bachelor's degree programme without selection. Please note that other educational institutions may have set a different application deadline. 

* Did you apply by 1 May at the latest? If so, you should return the form by 1 June.
