In terms of getting your application ready, the golden rule is to apply as early as possible. The sooner you apply, the sooner you will know whether you are accepted or not. Usually, it takes around 2-6 weeks for the admissions department to make a decision. Make sure you double check whether all your documents are uploaded, if they are the correct ones or if something is missing. 

Applying from outside the EU?

When you are applying from outside the EU, make sure to check your VISA requirements. Take a look at the Immigration Service Desk. Find out what you’ll need to sort out, make a list and a plan, so you don’t lose track of your to-dos. Apart from that you can find  Information for international students where you’ll see when to pay your fees. Be aware that you need to do that on time so your enrollment is set! If you don’t pay, you will not be enrolled, even though you got accepted. So, note: acceptance is not enrollment.

Application Requirements

Check the requirements for the program you are applying for on the according page at Campus Fryslan’s website, where all programs are listed. Considering English language proficiency, know that you might need a TOEFL or IELTS to prove your English level. If you are applying for a Master’s Degree and your Bachelor’s Degree was taught in English, then you don’t need to provide a certificate.

Still unsure?

If you struggle finding information or would like to get in touch with “a real person”, take a look at the Student Administration & Information where you will find a number of contacts to get in touch with. 

Also know that you can always reach out to students who are in your desired program already. Check out LinkedIn or contact the students directly. They all have been in the same situation before and can help you out with any questions or struggles you may come across. Good luck!
