Registration and enrolment

Applying for a study programme abroad may be very different than in your home country. We are happy to assist you during the application process and will answer any question you may have.

Step 1: Register in Studielink
If you want to study at Zuyd, you first need to register via Studielink. This is the national application website for higher education in the Netherlands. It is also available in English and German. You can access Studielink 24 hours a day and seven days a week to enrol (or to withdraw your application). In some cases, you also need to register with the programme itself, for example if there are additional admission requirements.  

  • If you are a resident in the Netherlands:
    Log in with your personal DigiD code. If you do not yet have a DigiD code yet, you can request one at DigiD. Please allow five working days for your request to be processed.
  • If you are not resident in the Netherlands:
    Request a user name and password via Studielink.

Step 2: Submit an enrolment request
Select "new enrolment request" and follow the instructions. 


Step 3: Submit application documents
Zuyd will receive your request from Studielink automatically and will begin processing it. You will receive an e-mail from Zuyd asking you to submit the documents required for enrolment. These documents include:

  • copy of your passport
  • your official diploma and transcript of records or a current list of marks if you are not graduated yet
  • your certificate of English-language proficiency (IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC or Cambridge).
The email you will receive from Zuyd will tell you exactly what documents you need to send.


Step 4: Admission requirements check
Once we have received all the required documents from you, we will verify if you meet all the admission requirements. We will notify you if we need any additional information from you. Once you have sent us all the documents required and we have established that you meet all the admission requirements, there will be an announcement in Studielink that you have been accepted as a student at our institution. After that you will receive e-mails with practical information about tuition fees, and if necessary, your visa application form. 


Step 5: Finalize your application
To finalize your application you need to pay the tuition fee.

  • If you are from a EU/EER Member State: check that your bank is able to process international (SEPA) payments. Go to your personal Studielink page and follow the instructions provided. After you have set up a direct debit mandate and confirmed your payment details, your enrolment is complete and you are set to start your study programme.
  • If you are from a non-EU Member State: check that your bank is able to process international (SEPA) payments. Go to your personal Studielink page and follow the instructions provided. If your bank is not SEPA proof, you must transfer the tuition fees to Zuyd. Once we have received your payment and have verified that you meet the visa requirements, we will apply for a student visa on your behalf. After approximately four weeks, you will receive a notification that you can collect your visa from the Netherlands Embassy or Consulate in your country. 

    Some students may be eligible for a scholarship. Check the possibilities

    Every year, non-EU/EEA students are required to provide written evidence of their ability to live and study in The Netherlands to the local authorities. This means that you should have at least € 8000 at your disposal on a Dutch bank account.
