Key dates for September 2020 intake

PPLE organises two application rounds per year, an Early Bird application round and a Regular application round.

Early Bird

Applicants can submit an enrolment request via Studielink (www.studielink.nl) as of 1 October. Subsequently you will receive an email with a link to the application form in the MyInfo portal. Candidates who submit their complete application via the MyInfo portal before 1 December will be considered for the Early Bird application round. Selected candidates are informed mid-January and invited to proceed to the essay round that takes place between 17 - 20 January. The Admissions Committee convenes by the end of January to select the candidates who are invited for the interview round. The interviews are scheduled between 3 - 16 February. The Committee comes together for their final Early Bird selection meeting by the end of February. During this meeting the final selection of prospective students will be made and the successful applicants are awarded a conditional offer.

Overview Early Bird admissions:

  • 1 October - 1 December: submit application form (via MyInfo portal)
  • 17 - 20  January: essay round
  • 3 - 16 February: interview round
  • Before 1 March the final results are communicated.

Regular

Applicants can submit their application until 1 March. Selected candidates are informed in the beginning of April and invited to proceed to the essay round that takes place between 2 - 5 April. The Admissions Committee convenes in mid-April to select the candidates who are invited for the interview round. The interviews are scheduled between 18 - 29 April. The Committee comes together for their final Regular selection meeting at the beginning of May. During this meeting the final selection of prospective students will be made and the successful applicants are awarded a conditional offer.

Overview Regular admissions:

  • 1 December - 1 March: submit application form (via MyInfo portal)
  • 2 - 5 April: essay round
  • 18 - 29 April: interview round
  • Before 10 May the final results are communicated.

Please note, decisions per selection round are always communicated via email. Make sure to keep a close eye on your email and spam filter.

Chances on being conditionally selected for enrolment are equal among the Early Bird and the Regular application. However, we recommend applying to the Early Bird round as this allows more time to finalize your enrolment and arrange practical matters, e.g. visa, housing, and insurance.
