Applications and admissions


Our summer schools are open to advanced Bachelor (in some cases) and (post) graduate students (in most cases). A few summer schools are also open to professionals. You should always have a good command of English to actively participate in group discussions and be able to present a paper.

Each summer school has their own set of requirements, which can be found on their web page.

Application procedure

Click at the course title to get to the specific page for this summer school. The online application form can be found under the tab 'Apply Now'. The application deadlines for the summer schools differ, so please check well in advance.

Each summer school has a simple application procedure. In most cases, you only have to fill out the online application form and upload the required documents. Before you apply, please make sure that you have the required documents ready.

Within three working days after you have submitted your application, you will be notified of the procedure by the summer school coordinator. Please note that this is not a confirmation of acceptance. Each summer school has a selection committee, that will decide on who will be admitted, to guarantee the quality of the audience.

Once you have been admitted, you will be notified as soon as possible, so that you can make travel arrangements. Please wait for your summer school notification that you have been admitted before making your travel arrangements!

If you want to apply now, please consider the online application of the summer school of your choice.


Once you have received notification that you have been admitted, the summer school coordinator will inform you about the payment procedures. These will be equally simple.


Depending on your nationality, you might need a visa for entering the Netherlands, a so called Schengen visa (short stay visa).

Please note that you can only apply for a visa after you have been admitted to the Summer School. If needed, your Summer School coordinator can provide an invitation letter. Please inform them well in advance, as soon as possible after you have received your (informal) notification of acceptance.
