2. Verification of your pre-education

The pre-education of Dutch students will be verified via Studielink (if you have obtained your pre-education in the Netherlands*). This should be automatically verified before the enrolment deadline.

Please check if this has been done once you have obtained your degree (note that this could take a couple of weeks after graduation).

When your pre-education is not verified two weeks before the enrolment deadline, please make sure you forward us the following document:

before the following dates:

  • September intake: Deadline proof of graduation (Dutch pre-education) 2 weeks before the enrolment deadline of August 31.
  • February intake: Deadline proof of graduation (Dutch pre-education) 2 weeks before the enrolment deadline of January 31.

You can bring this document to the student desk or alternatively send this document to:     

Wageningen University & Research
Student Service Centre
Admissions office
Droevendaalsesteeg 2
6708 PB Wageningen
The Netherlands

*Please follow step 2 on the information page of the EU students if you have obtained your pre-education outside the Netherlands

3. Verification of your identity

If you applied in studielink using DigiD, your ID is automatically verified. You don’t need to take any action.

If you have not used DigiD to log in, then your identity has to be verified by Wageningen University. In order to make that possible for us, you should upload a copy of your passport or European ID card via the application portal. This is the same portal you used for uploading your diploma and transcript in order to gain admission to the programme.

4. Housing

Wageningen University & Research has a large community of students. Finding a room in Wageningen or the surrounding area is not always easy. Most students in Wageningen rent a room through Idealis, but you can also choose to search for a room yourself through other channels.

If you live further away than 130 km from Wageningen, you can get priority at Idealis. For a room at Idealis, you can register at ROOM.nl. You can already do this when you turn 16. On this page you will find more tips about finding a room.

5. Annual Introduction Days

The best start to your studies is to participate in the Annual Introduction Days (AID). Every year, around 95% of all new students participate in the AID.

In the AID you will be placed in a group of 10 students and you will be guided by two mentors (the AID 'moms and dads'). They will take you all around Wageningen. Lots of groups stay in contact after the AID! During the AID, you will get to know the University, your fellow students, all the student organisations, student fellowships, the city and all that Wageningen has to offer. During the AID there are many activities for you to quickly feel at home in Wageningen.
