2. Register via Studielink.nl
Studielink is the online application and registration service for universities and universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands. In Studielink, you will have to indicate which programme you would like to register for. Before you start, please ensure you meet the registration deadlines. Your deadline depends on which programme you have chosen. Please upload the required documents in MyUM right after registration.
Read more about the deadlines on this webpage.
Create an account in Studielink
As a prospective bachelor’s student, you first register via Studielink.
You live in the Netherlands: If you are registered in a Dutch municipality, you can register using your DigiD. If you do not yet have a DigiD, you will need to request one.
You do not (yet) live in the Netherlands: you still register via Studielink, but you will not be able to use DigiD. Instead, you create a Studielink account yourself.
Use your private email address in Studielink
Never use a UM email address in Studielink; use your private email address instead. This is important, because if you de-register, your email address will be terminated after two months and thereafter you will be unable to change your password in Studielink.
Deadline for programmes with matching procedure
Please note: the admission and registration process for studying at Maastricht University has changed. Matching (Studiekeuzecheck) is no longer mandatory in the process and your registration can be finalized without having completed the Matching procedure.
Matching to help you choose
If you want to, you can still complete the Matching procedure. It can help clarify whether the programme is the right choice for you.
The application deadlines for bachelor’s programmes with matching procedure are:
- EU/EEA-students: up to and including 1 May 2019
- Non-EU/EEA-students who need a visa or residence permit: up to and including 1 April 2019

Is your application for a fixus programme too late?

The deadline for application for all ‘numerus fixus’ programmes is 15 January 2019, 23:59 CET. After this date it is no longer possible to apply for such a programme via Studielink.
Deadline for selective programmes
