Enrolment and re-enrolment

If you are found admissible after the entrance examination or audition, you need to satisfy the enrolment criteria to enrol on your course. Subsequently, you will have to re-enrol for each new academic year.

If you have completed your enrolment by 31 August you will be enrolled at ArtEZ as of 1 September. This is to say that the enrolment or re-enrolment has been finalised via Studielink and that you have met all other enrolment criteria. The current students have to do a re-enrolment application through Studielink for the following academic year at ArtEZ. Are you changing courses at ArtEZ? Then submit a new enrolment application through Studielink.

The Student Affairs Department will inform all new and current students about their (re-)enrolment. You can read all information about (the conditions for) (re-)enrolment and (payment of) tuition fees on our website. You can use the Studielink step-by-step plans to arrange your (re-)enrolment through Studielink.
Studielink will keep you informed of the progress of your registration or re-registration application by email, so check your mailbox regularly!

Enrolment criteria

After you have passed your entrance examination/audition for your course at ArtEZ, you will have to meet the enrolment criteria below by 31 August to be able to start with your course at ArtEZ as of 1 September. 
If you are a non-EU student, we strongly advise you to fulfill the enrolment criteria before the 1 June.
That will give us time to arrange your visa and permit before the start of the academic year. If the 1 June isn’t possible for you, please contact the Student Affairs Department.

International students may be subject to additional enrolment criteria, such as a residence permit. Read our brochures for more information. It is always possible to contact the Student Affairs Department for more details.
