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.

Please note: you have to be in possession of a passport or EU/EEA ID-card to apply at UM. Without a passport or EU/EEA ID-card, it is not possible to apply.
