Dutch Application Deadline Imminent For Some Programmes

The deadline for about 10% of the programmes (only) in the Netherlands is 23.59 (22.59 Irish time) on 15th January.

These programmes, which all have a selection procedure, include:

- all Psychology programmes
- two of the Physiotherapy programmes
- most of the International Business programmes at Research Universities.
- most of the Computer Sci and Artificial Intelligence programmes at Research Unis
- both programmes in Medicine
- both International Relations programmes
- a few Engineering programmes (e.g. Aerospace Engineering in Delft)
- Fashion in AMFI

Check the deadline given on this site, on the relevant programme profile.

The Dutch are super efficient and no late applications will be accepted, even if you are "only" five minutes late.

Note, this is the deadline to have your application registered in the Dutch system, not just on EUNICAS. So, it is suggested that you submit your EUNiCAS Pre-Application Form by 13th January at the latest!!

Most programmes in the Netherlands are not selective (you are entitled to a place if you have minimum entry requirements) and deadline for most programmes in Research Universities is 1st May and, for most programmes in Universities of Applied Sciences, deadline is 1st August.

OMG, Youre Going To Be a Doctor
Written on Saturday, 28 October 2023 12:38

More and more Irish students, faced with the points mountain at home, have become aware of the opportunities to study health sciences, through English, in Continental Europe and are going to Italy, Poland, Spain and elsewhere to qualify in their chosen profession with qualifications recognised in Ireland. Importantly, Leaving Cert points are largely irrelevant in securing places on these programmes.

So, if you want to be a doctor, a dentist or a vet come to this event and discover your options, including entry requirements, costs and accommodation.

Some of the universities, which represent the top choices of Irish students who have already travelled to study, will be making presentations and are available to meet. It is quite likely that, well before the stressful months of the Leaving Cert endgame, you will have secured a place at one of these universities.

Remember, high Leaving Cert points are a poor predictor of success as a Doctor or a Vet! here

Applications Open in the Netherlands on 1st October


Applications open this weekend for students looking to join undergraduate programmes in Dutch universities for the 2024/25 academic year.

For almost all programmes,, you have the same chance of getting a place, if you apply of first day of applications period or last day. It is a long application period so for those Leaving Certificate and A-Level students panicking about submitting their application on time, deadlines are fairly distant.

For those programmes with a selection procedure (only some 10% of programmes), applications close on 15th January. For most other programmes in the Research Universities, the deadline is 1st May and, in the Universities of Applied Sciences the deadline is 1st August,

There are a few exceptions to the deadlines, some earlier and some later, You should check for these on the relevant programme profile.

When students first apply, they will need a copy of their passport (which must be current so if it isn't, apply now to get it renewed. As the application processes, there will other documents that you need to provide. EUNICAS details these in the step-by-step Application Guidelines you will receive, when you submit your Pre-Application Form. We will also advise you on the number of courses you can apply to, whether you meet the entry requirements and other important considerations.

Engineering Programmes in Groningen
Written on Friday, 09 June 2023 20:05

-One of the differences between studying Engineering in Ireland and in mainland Europe is that, at home, we often have the opportunity to do a Common Engineering first year, before specialising in a particular area of Engineering from second year. This is not generally available in Europe. However, at the impressive Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen there is a structure that is half-way there.

For example, you can opt for a broad first year in their Electronics programme, then choose your specialization: Mechatronics, Sensor Technology, Electronics or Mechanical Engineering. Note also that, after a successful first year in a University of Applied Sciences (UAS), students can transfer to Engineering degrees in other areas at Research Universities.

Remember though that the Research Universities are much more text-book based than the highly practical UAS. Hanze UAS offers lots of hours in labs, workshops, visiting companies and building sites. It also has a Makerspace where you can access 3D printers, metal-working and wood-working machinery etc, at all times of the day (and free to use for everyone!). There are also two engineering internships as part of the Hanze programme. Often the company in which you did one of your internships becomes your employer, after your graduate. The engineering programmes at Hanze have a very good graduate employment rate.

Students design their own racing car and enter it for competitions

So, if you want to study on one of the top Engineering programmes in Europe, a programme that is very-hands on and practical, studying in a city which boast a high number of Irish students, in a country with a reputation for high quality and creative engineering, Hanze is the place for you!

(and, remember, your Leaving Cert points are irrelevant!)
