Steps to your enrolment

On Hint you will find information about, for example, the start week, your schedule and your book list. (This information will be available close to the starting date of your study programme). The login codes will also give you access to your personal university e-mail and Osiris (student registration system)
- Centre of International Affairs (CoIA) also confirms your Studielink registration by email together with application instructions and a list of required documents that you need to send to CoIA for evaluation.
1. Required documents can be sent by email. However please be informed that digital copies of your diploma and final transcripts are only used to determine if you meet the requirements. For your final registration, original certified photocopies* of your diploma and final transcripts send by post or submitted in person are still required (see admission requirements).
2. If at the time of applying you are still in your final year, we can also determine if you are eligible to apply based on your current transcripts plus a statement from your school indicating when and for which diploma you are expected to graduate.
- CoIA admissions will check that your diploma and your level of English meet the requirements for the programme and will contact you for an intake interview. If you do not meet the language or previous education requirements, CoIA may advise you to take a preparation course.
- After the intake interview you will receive a conditional admission and statement of understanding. Additional information about practical matters like housing, insurance and visa will be provided by email by team Student Support.
- You will receive an invoice by email for tuition fees and additional fees that apply. Students of the Master in Shipping and Transport who have an EU/EEA nationality are excluded, as they will have to authorize Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences on Studielink in order to fulfil the payment.
- Non- EU only: After you have paid the fees as stated on the invoice and we have received the required documents for the visa application, team Student Support will apply for your student visa (MVV) and residence permit (VVR). You (or your agent) will be informed when your MVV is ready to be collected at the Dutch consulate or embassy in your country.

During these days CoIA will assist you with practical matters like municipality registrationand residence permit and several social activities will be organized by CoIA and the student ambassadors.
