Application & enrolment

If you would like to study at Maastricht University (UM), you will have to send in your application via Studielink. UM will then check whether your previous education meets UM’s admission requirements and will notify you of the outcome. If you meet the requirements, you qualify for admission.

This does not always mean that you will be admitted, because some programmes have extra requirements. Some bachelor's programmes have a set number of students and you will have to go through a selection procedure to procure a place.

If you satisfy all of the requirements, you can be admitted. Once you have been admitted, you can enrol and become a student at Maastricht University.

For a pre-master's programme

Are you a university of applied sciences student looking to obtain a university master's degree? Or is your bachelor’s study insufficient for admission to the master’s programme of your choice? In either case, you can do a pre-master's programme. It will give you the knowledge and skills you need to participate in the master's programme.

Every pre-master offered by the UM has its own web page within the UM website. On that page you'll find among others information about the admissions requirements and the application and enrolment process.
