Please note the admissions round for studies beginning in September 2019 closed on May 1st. The next admissions round (for studies beginning September 2020) will open in October 2019.  

Here you will find information about applying to our LLM programmes, 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 us at llm.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 applying to pursue two LLMs simultaneously, please contact the International Office at for special instructions.

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