How to write a project proposal

Application deadlines
Applications are welcome throughout the year. The application deadline for the 2018-2019 academic year is April 30, 2018. Please apply on time. Overseas students will need extra time to arrange for visa and funding. 

Based on your application, the admissions committee will decide whether you meet the entry requirements. If you live in the Netherlands, the admissions committee may select you for an interview. If you live outside the Netherlands, you may be contacted for additional information and a Skype interview. As soon as the admissions committee has made a selection, you will receive a letter stating whether or not you have been admitted to the programme. If you are offered a place on the programme you will receive a registration form with which you formalise your registration.
