Prior education - Verified

Most qualifications (Dutch diplomas) are verified automatically using the national diploma register. Once this has occurred, this item might disappear from your To-do list without you having to take any further action. However, it might be that (additional) documents are needed. Foreign diplomas are not registered in the Dutch national diploma register and need to be verified by the University.

The prior education verification has not yet taken place or additional information is required in order to fulfill this To-Do item. This item “Prior education - Verified” disappears as soon as your prior education registered (by yourself) in Studielink has been verified (and is possibly admissible).

Bachelor's program with Dutch prior education

If you have registered for a Bachelor’s program in Studielink based on prior education in the Netherlands, this needs to be verified before your enrollment at the university can be completed.

Most qualifications are verified automatically using the national diploma register. Once this has occurred, this item will disappear from your To-do list without you having to take any further action if the prior education is admissible.

This verification has not yet taken place. Possibly, in order to be enrolled on time, you might have to hand in an original statement of graduation, certified copy of the diploma and/or a transcript (of record).

For Economics bachelor's degree programs, the bachelor's programs in Data Science and Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, it is possible that your (verified) prior education does not meet the mathematics and/or English language requirement. You can read more information about this in the admission requirements of your program. If you have any questions, please contact the Student Desk. This action point may remain open because in the case of an application for a bachelor's degree program mentioned above, it has not yet been verified whether the relevant mathematics requirement and/or English language requirement has been met.

Action to be taken by student: 

Submit a certified copy of the vwo/hbo(P) diploma and list of grades or graduation statement to the Student Desk.

Pay attention:

For a Economic bachelor's program or the Bachelor's in Data Science  you may also need to submit a mathematics certificate to the Student Desk. More information about this can be found on the website of the study program.

For the bachelor's degree in Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence, you may also need to provide a mathematics certificate and the result of an English language test. If you have a hbo(P) diploma, submit a diploma or graduation statement, a mathematics certificate and the English language test result to the faculty. More information about this can be found on the website of the study program.

Please note that we require an original statement of graduation; a copy will not suffice.
