Step-by-step admission LLB programme
The full process of application, matching and admission can be a bit complicated. You will be overloaded with information and messages, from Studielink, the University of Groningen and the Faculty of Law (more specifically the LLB programme). To support you in getting through this process, we have made an overview of 8 steps to take. If you follow all steps accurately, you will know for sure that you have done all you can to be admitted to your new programme. Please be aware that this page is only applicable to applicants of the English-taught LLB programme International and European Law programme. Students interested in the Dutch-taught programme and more specifically the Dutch-taught track 'Internationaal en Europees Recht' within the bachelor programme 'Rechtsgeleerdheid' should check the Dutch version of this page (upper right corner of this page).
If something is not clear to you yet, you can email your questions or remarks to our Faculty's matching coordinator for the LLB programme: firstname.lastname@example.org.

|2. Check your admissibility|
If you are considering starting the English-taught LLB programme International and European Law at the University of Groningen, please check whether you are admissible to this programme. Of course, we understand that you possibly have not completed your pre-university education yet before the application deadline or before the matching activity.
Admissible are students who hold:
Please make sure to check our webpage for the specific programme admission requirements.
|3. Gain in-depth knowledge of the programme|
If you are certain you are admissible with your (nearly) completed pre-university education, you can gain more in-depth knowledge of the programme. You can e.g. do so by participating in the web class International and European Law, which is offered twice per year.
|4. Apply in Studielink & the Online Application System (OAS)|
VERY IMPORTANT: APPLY BEFORE 1 MAY 2019!
The application procedure only starts for real when you apply for the programme in Studielink. Please make sure to apply for the programme before 1 May! This is a very strict deadline, which applies to most bachelor programmes in the Netherlands. After 1 May, your admission right to our programme expires. Students with an international pre-university degree will also have to upload their application documents in the Online Application System (OAS). This also needs to be completed before 1 May. More information on how to complete these steps can be found here, more particularly under step 1 (Apply).
A list of documents to be uploaded in the Online Application System (OAS) is to be found on our programme pages.
TOO LATE AND YOU HAVE APPLIED AFTER 1 MAY?
Then the Admissions Office cannot process your application and you are therefore not admissible to the first year of the LLB programme International and European Law for the academic year 2019-2020.
There is a limitative number of situations in which application between 1 May and 1 August is permitted. In all these situations a deadline of 1 August applies:
If you are of the opinion that one of these two situations apply to you, please contact the Faculty a.s.a.p. by emailing to email@example.com. Please indicate clearly to which of the two exceptions mentioned above apply to you, write a strong motivation and add the documentation to prove the situation.
REGISTERED AFTER 1 AUGUST?
Your application will not be taken into consideration, even if one of the exceptions mentioned above applies. This means you are not admissible from that point onwards for the LLB programme International and European Law for the academic year 2019-2020.
STUDENTS HOLDING A VWO DIPLOMA
In most cases, our Central Student Administration will receive a direct confirmation of successfully completing the VWO degree in the Netherlands from the Dutch government. Therefore students holding a Dutch VWO diploma will only have to apply in Studielink (and complete the matching > STEP 5) in order to be admitted. They do not have to upload their documents in the Online Application System (OAS).
|5. Complete your matching|
If you want to participate in the LLB programme International and European Law, it is compulsory to join in our matching activity. Matching was set up by the Dutch government to allow students to make an informed decision on the programme they wish to enter. In order to do so, programmes will offer an activity that paints a clear picture about the programme (the educational format, the amount of reading, the level of assessment, and (part of) the content of the programme). Considering the fact that most applicants for the LLB International and European Law are international and thus do not reside in the Netherlands, the Faculty has chosen to offer the matching activity online. This will be done by way of a web class; this web class will offer two topics (European law and public international law) and will take a maximum of 3 hours to complete.
The matching web class will be offered twice this Spring: once at the end of April (30 April - 7 May) and once at the end of May (29 May - 5 June). The web class will be available for one week; during this week, you can decide yourself at which day during that week you will participate in the web class. If you wish to participate in the web class at the end of April, please inform the Faculty by sending a message to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not send such a message before 27 April 2019, the Faculty will place you in the web class that is offered at the end of May.
Please be aware that not participating in the matching web class will block your registration as a student in the LLB programme International and European Law for the academic year 2019-2020.
Exemption compulsory matching
There are a few options to be exempt from participating in the compulsory matching activity. Such an exemption can only be secured prior to the last matching web class. Therefore, the deadline is 28 May. The only exception to this rule is if you pass a full first year at a research university after 28 May.
Exemptions can be applied for when:
|6. Arrange for your tuition fee payment|
Please make sure to pay your tuition fee before 31 August! Also check if the matching advice has been registered properly. If you have not paid your fees in time, you cannot be registered as a student of the LLB programme International and European Law and your enrolments for both courses and exams become invalid...
|7. Prepare starting your programme properly|
A new step-by-step, fully geared towards you starting the LLB programme, will be published by the end of June. This new step-by-step will include information about your time table for both classes and exams, ordering books and readers, the digital systems you will be using for your studies, programme information, email account, etcetera. You will then also receive more detailed information about the Faculty introduction and induction sessions (see STEP 8).
|8. Participate in the Faculty introduction and induction sessions|
The Faculty organises a plenary introduction session for all students participating in the English-taught programmes on 28 August. In addition, induction sessions are offered for all separate working groups of the LLB programme, which will take place on 29 and 30 August. Participation in both the introduction and induction session is compulsory. Both sessions will provide you with a lot of important information, which will allow you to start your programme in a good manner.
