1. I WILL BE REGISTERED AT A DUTCH ADDRESS ON 1 MAY.
If you are living in the Netherlands on the 1 May application deadline and have applied to enrol in a non-selective or non numerus fixus Bachelor’s programme at Utrecht University, then matching is a required part of your enrolment procedure. Check out the Matching FAQ to find out if matching is required for your preferred degree programme.
What does matching entail?
Matching at Utrecht University comprises various activities. The matching procedure is as follows:
Completing the matching form on time
A matching form will be sent to you by email stating the deadline for submission. The form will ask about your motivation to do the degree programme, among other things.
Attending the matching activity
The matching activity will introduce you to studying through actual teaching activities of the degree programme of your choice. At home, you will study learning material and complete assignments. You will then attend a tutorial or practicum which is followed by a test. As soon as there is more information about the programme of the matching activity, this will be posted on the degree programme website. The matching activities may take place both offline and online. Naturally, we will inform you of this once more information is available.
Reflecting on your degree programme choice
You will receive feedback on your studying approach and we will discuss your motivation with you. This not only means you will be well prepared when the academic year actually starts, but it will also allow you to determine whether the degree programme is the right choice. The feedback given by the degree programme department during matching is not intended as binding advice, nor should it be considered part of some sort of selection procedure. You are the one who takes the final decision on whether to enrol.
