Important notice
The application round for the 2020-2021 academic year intake has now ended.

The application round for the 2021-2022 academic year should open in October 2020. Please check back to these webpages for further information about applying for the next intake then.

If you are a new incoming student for the 2020-2021 academic year, please read here.

Here you will find information about applying to our LLB programme, including:

The application process is done online. The Dutch government has implemented a system of online application for all Dutch universities and ‘hogescholen’ (universities of applied science), called Studielink. All students are required to register themselves through Studielink for the programme(s) of their choice. Your application will immediately transported to our Online Application System (OAS). Applicants will receive an email from our OAS with their login details. Please check any spambox/junkmail folder for this message as well; as it is an automated message, it quite often ends up there.

Applicants can then upload all documents in our OAS and submit their application there. The Admissions Office is only allowed to process files after you have pressed the button ‘submit’ in OAS. Applicants will receive a notification of our Admission Officers soon after that, that they are processing their file. If applicants do not receive any notifications at all, please email at llb.admission, as something might have gone wrong.

As the procedure is a little bit complicated because of our obligation to use Studielink, you can find step-by-step manuals (for both systems) and more information on the exact application procedure here. If you are interested to transfer credits into the LLB programme to request exemption from a specific course, read more about such requests here.

Instructions regarding the new matching process can be found here. If ever any questions about the matching procedure, please contact matching.llb

Applications sent to us by regular mail will not be considered unless the students in question completed an online application!

All questions regarding applications can be sent to the Admissions office at llb.admission
