Matching at the Faculty of Economics and Business

Matching is a procedure for students who want to apply for a Bachelor's degree programme without a decentral selection procedure for the academic year 2020-2021. If you wish to apply to one of our Bachelor's degree programmes, you need to do this before May 1, 2020 in Studielink. This deadline is a statutory requirement. When you have applied, you have the right to participate in a matching activity. During a matching activity you can find out whether the programme that you have applied for matches with your expectations of the programme and what you want to do in the future.

Please note: after May 1, 2020 admittance to the programme (and the possibility of matching) is only possible in the following exceptional cases:

  • if you have been enrolled in the same Bachelor's degree programme before;
  • if you were not selected to a programme with a numerus fixus and/or selection;
  • if you have applied for another Bachelor's degree programme before May 1, 2020 for the academic year 2020-2021;
  • if you have received (or expect to receive) a negative binding study advice (BSA) for your current bachelor programme this academic year;
  • if you can prove with supporting documents that you could not have applied by May 1, 2020 at the latest on the grounds of compelling circumstances.

If you think that one of the above situations applies to you, please contact us as soon as possible via matching.feb@rug.nl.
Make sure that you apply in Studielink no later than July 31, 2020. Applications after this date will not be accepted.

Please note: when you apply with an non-Dutch diploma, a different deadline may apply.

When you are applying after the deadline, you can not be admitted to the programme anymore and you can neither participate in the Matching procedure.

  • If the exceptions mentioned above do not apply to you, then you need to apply in Studielink on May 1, 2020 at the latest.
  • If the exceptions mentioned above do apply to you, then you need to apply in Studielink on July 31, 2020 at the latest.

The Matching procedure is offered for the following Bachelor's degree programmes:

After your application in Studielink for one of the Bachelor's degree programmes mentioned above, you will be able to log on to the Matching Portal after activating your student account. Here you will find more information about the possible matching activities for that particular programme.
