Curious about what to expect during our regular Open Days?
On Monday 23 March, the government introduced new measures that have a far-reaching effect on our interactions and make education on location impossible until at least June 1st.
Due to the advice from RIVM, all admissions on the location will be cancelled with the exception of the ‘studiekeuzecheck’ appointments of the Bachelor programme Leisure & Events Management.
All admissions days for the Bachelors in Fine Art, Design and Teacher Training will only take place through 'remote admission'. You can apply for this option through our online application tool. This applies to all nationalities. Please visit this page for further details.
