Important information for non-EU students

The Admissions committee can conditionally admit you based on information about the type of diploma you will obtain and a list of marks you have obtained so far. However, in order to apply for an entry visa, the Admissions committee has to have received certified copies of your documents before July 1 (applicable for non-EU students). This includes your obtained diploma, final list of marks and language and/or subject tests if applicable (i.e. you have to meet all requirements mentioned in the personal admission letter before this deadline).

Wageningen University does not arrange entry visa based on predicted grades or expected graduation dates. We are aware that this means that sometimes students are not able to start the programme in September of the current year but have to wait an extra year. To postpone, you should reapply for the programme in the next academic year via Studielink.
