Applying to University in the Netherlands with A-Levels? Watch
I was wondering if anyone could clue me in by explaining the entry requirements and application process of Dutch universities in general, and if you could perhaps go into specifics for some universities (like Erasmus or Amsterdam).
I was also doing some research and saw something about requiring an A-Level in Maths or having to sit a Maths entry exam? Is this true? Does everyone need to have studied Maths for A-Level? Because I haven't taken it since my GCSEs (where I got an A/7).
(Just as added information, I'm thinking of applying to study Psychology or Criminology.)
Thank you so much!
I applied for a numerous fixus course IRO at Leiden University. I was ranked 148 and achieved A*AAA. However, I was unable to take up my place due to not being offered any accommodation apart from a sport centre floor to sleep on in Freshers week. I applied for accommodation through ROOM.NL a year in advance, but most people apply 4-5 years before. If I applied again I would register with roomplaza.com earlier.
It is a shame Dutch universities are losing out on good students due to accommodation. I have been forced to have a gap year and probably will not apply again. I could not defer my place without going through selection again and will be travelling in Asia when I selection happens.
Good luck with your application.
