If you are a resident in the Netherlands, the Matching procedure is compulsory in order to start the Literary Studies programme.
- Form and letter of motivation
Once you have registered for the Literary Studies programme via Studielink and your application has been approved by the admissions office, you receive an invitation for the Matching procedure. You fill out the matching form, which includes a letter of motivation, emphasising why you want to study Literary Studies at Utrecht University, what your expectations are, and refer to strengths and weaknesses.
- Matching meeting for Dutch residents
After submitting your form you will be invited to participate in the Matching meeting that takes pace on Thursday, April 9, 2020 and on Thursday, June 4, 2020. Two weeks before the matching activity, you will receive an invitation by email to take part in the matching activity. This email will tell you where to find the information about the location, the programme and how you can prepare for this activity.
Based on your experience during the Matching meeting and the feedback you received from the teacher, you can make your deliberated final decision about starting the Literary Studies programme at Utrecht University. Please note that you will also need to meet the programme’s entry requirements (see: https://www.uu.nl/bachelors/en/literary-studies/entry-requirements). If, on the other hand, you come to the conclusion that Literary Studies is not the right course for you, we kindly ask you to withdraw your registration via Studielink.
For prospective Literary Studies students who live abroad, participation in the Matching meeting at Utrecht is not obligatory, but certainly possible. If you would like to attend one of these meetings, please send an email to email@example.com.
If you have any further questions regarding the Literary Studies programme’s Matching procedure, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. General information you can find at https://www.uu.nl/bachelors/en/general-information/international-students/application-and-admission/matching.
