Application procedure

Great that you have decided to apply for the BSc Global Responsibility & Leadership! The application deadline for our programme is the 1st of May of a given calender year. Please note that the earlier you apply in the year, the quicker we are able to process your application and the sooner you will know if you will be part of the UCF class in the coming year!


Below is a list of the steps you need to take in order to apply for the GRL programme:

1. Studielink application

Studielink is the system used in the Netherlands to enrol students in higher education programmes. Both the University and the Dutch government obtain their information from Studielink, so it is important that the information that you upload in Studielink is current and accurate.

  • Please log in with your DigiD.
    General studielink instructions can be found here.
  • Since you are not registered in the Netherlands you do not have a digital signature (DigiD) yet. Please use the option “Log in without DigiD” instead. General information about how you will use studielink can be found here.

2. Application System

After you have applied for the GRL programme via Studielink:

If you have a Dutch diploma: you will receive an email from us with more information on the procedure.

If you have a non-Dutch diploma: you will get an automatic email which will allow you to access the University of Groningen Online Application System (OAS). OAS is the University of Groningen's enrolment software where you will upload all the documentation you need to be able to apply for the programme. You may find the step-by-step guide on how to complete the OAS registration helpful.

3. Acceptance to the Programme

Once you have uploaded all the required documents in OAS, the Admissions Office will review your application and make sure all required documents have been uploaded correctly. Once your file is complete, it will be sent to the Admissions Board. Once it has been reviewed by the Admissions Board, you will receive a decision letter. If you have been deemed admissible to the programme, you will then go through the selection procedure.

4. Accepting your offer

If you are offered a place on the programme, you will receive a (conditional) offer per email. You can accept your offer by returning your signed Confirmation of Participation digitally, a sheet that is attached to this official acceptance letter. Once you have accepted your offer and you have met the conditions linked to your offer, you are required to send certified copies of your diploma and transcript (and official translations if applicable) to the Admissions Office:
