Pre-Master's program

Most Premaster’s programs take one year to complete. If you do not complete your program in one year and you wish to continue on your Premaster’s program in the next academic year then you should follow the procedure for re-enrollment.

If you are joining a Premaster's program for the first time, then follow the steps below.

Step 1: Register in Studielink

Go to Studielink and follow the registration procedure, which is explained step by step. Make sure that you choose the correct Premaster’s program (the one that you have been admitted to). If you choose a Premaster’s program to which you have not been admitted, then the enrollment process will not proceed properly. Registration in Studielink can take place concurrently with an application for admission (Step 2).

Enrollment in most of the Premaster's programs can only take place as of September 1. To enroll as of February 1, you have to move through the same steps as for the September enrollment.  However, you have to choose for ‘February enrollment’ in Studielink. See the overview February intake, for possibilities for an enrollment in February.

Step 2: Submit an application for admission

In addition to registering in Studielink, you must also submit an application for admission to the relevant school’s Admissions Committee. The exact procedure varies between programs and/or schools. For more information, open the drop-down menu below and click on the Premaster’s program of your choice.

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 de-enroll for that program and then enroll in 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.
