Not meeting the admission requirements yet?

Many degree programmes have additional requirements for your prior education. For instance, they may require mathematics, chemistry, and or physics at pre-university (VWO) level. If you do not meet these admission requirements, you must demonstrate that you possess sufficient knowledge of the missing subjects in order to get admitted to the degree programme.

You can demonstrate your knowledge in different ways:


It is possible to register for specific subject exams in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology at the CCVX. More information about the exams they offer, how to register and prepare can be found on their website.


During the summer months, Boswell-Bèta in Utrecht provides additional courses and exams in the subjects of mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology. More information about the courses and the exams that can be taken is available on the Boswell-Bèta website.

Mathematics admissions exam

Wageningen University only provides an admissions exam for mathematics. If you want to take the admissions exam, you will have to study the material on your own (or arrange to be tutored). We do not provide courses for the admissions exam. The exam is free and you can take it multiple times. The admissions exams are held on 13 December 2017 (deadline for registration is 6 December 2017), 1 May 2018 (deadline for registration is 24 April 2018), and 9 August 2018 (registration deadline is 2 August 2018). The admissions exam lasts 3 hours.

A registration form, information on the learning materials, and the practice exams for the mathematics admissions exam at Wageningen University can be found on the right. The exam will consist of a combination of the Dutch wiskunde A and B.

A preparation package can be purchased at Studystore Wageningen.

PLEASE NOTE: If you are taking your admissions exam in August, Studystore Wageningen is closed at that time. For that reason, please be sure to purchase your package promptly.
