    If you decide to decline our programme offer, make sure you also withdraw your enrolment request in Studielink to avoid receiving emails about completing your enrolment.

    Register for the pre-Master's programme in Studielink

    After accepting your offer, you will need to submit a new enrolment request in Studielink, in addition to your Master's registration, only this time for the pre-Master's programme.

    The additional pre-Master's enrolment is very important and ensures that you can be placed in the courses of the pre-Master's programme. Arrange your additional pre-Master's enrolment request in Studielink within two weeks after receiving your conditional acceptance letter, and in any case before 1 August. If you do not undertake this step, you risk not being placed in the compulsory courses of the pre-Master's programme.

    Please note: this additional enrolment request does not complete your enrolment, nor does it oblige you to start the pre-Master's programme.
