You will need to be nominated by your home university before applying to Wageningen University. Your home university needs to send us an e-mail.

Once you receive your home university nomination, you will then receive an invitation from our Exchange Office to do your online application. Make sure to apply before the application deadline.

The online application consists of:

  1. An application form that you fill in online;
  2. A fully filled in Proposed selection of courses that you need to upload.
  3. An official transcript of records that you also need to upload.
  4. A proof of English proficiency. This is not necessary for native English speakers.

After your application has been submitted you will be contacted by your exchange coordinator regarding your study programme. Note that we receive many applications at the same time. It could take some time before you get feedback. Because of visa regulations, students with a non-EU nationality will be contacted first. In the beginning of June (for period 1 and 2) or November (for the remaining periods) an acceptance letter with further instructions will be sent. You will also receive an empty Learning Agreement after your courses are acctepted. This need tol be fully filled in and signed. Make sure your university puts an official stamp on it.

Usefull information to fill in the Learning Agreement:

Your designated exchange coordinator in Wageningen will send you registration forms to officially enroll as a student at our university. It is necessary to be enrolled so that you can register for courses and exams and get access to the digital WU environment.
