Administration and Money Matters

Following a Master's program

Follow the steps below if you

  • are joining a Master's program for the first time
  • are rejoining the same Master’s program after a break
  • want to take a new Master's program in addition to your current program

If you want to continue your current Master's program in the upcoming academic year, follow the procedure for re-enrollment.

Step 1: Register in Studielink

The procedure is explained step-by-step on the Studielink site.

Registration in Studielink can take place concurrently with an application for admission (Step 2).

February enrollment is available for a number of Master’s programs. Check with relevant school to find out which programs offer this option, or see the February enrollment overview. Whether enrolling for a program starting in February or September, the same procedure applies. Choose ‘February enrollment’ in Studielink.

Step 2: Submit an application for admission

In addition to registering in Studielink, you must also submit an application for admission to the Admissions Committee of the relevant school. The Admission Committee will decide on admission based on your prior educational qualifications, and may impose other admission requirements. The school will notify you of the Admission Committee’s decision. More information about the admissions requirements for the various Master’s programs can be found in the Master’s program list.

The following website contains information on submitting an application for admission.

Are you currently enrolled in another program at Tilburg University, then you automatically apply for admission via your Studielink registration. Therefore there is no need to file an application for admission separately.

Step 3: Notification from Admissions Committee

The Admissions Committee will process your application for admission and notify you of its decision. Check Studielink to make sure you are enrolled for the same program to which you have been admitted. If you are enrolled in the wrong program, then you should deregister for that program and then register for the correct program.

If you have not yet registered in Studielink, you should do so as soon as possible!

Even after receiving notification of admission (possibly provisional*), you are NOT YET enrolled at the university. Proceed to step 4.

* ‘Provisionally admitted' means that you have to fulfill certain conditions before final admission. For example, you may still need to submit a degree certificate.

If the Admissions Committee notifies you that you have not been admitted, then please do not forget to cancel your registration for the program in Studielink. You may then register for another program if desired.

Step 4: Completion of enrollment

Registration in Studielink does not mean you are automatically enrolled at Tilburg University. See Completion of enrollment for information on what you need to do to make sure you are properly enrolled for your degree program.
