Entry requirements

Inholland is dedicated to provide quality higher education to students from all educational backgrounds. We consider a wide range of qualifications, so you can be assured of flexible and individual consideration of your qualifications profile. More detailed information can be found on the page of your programme.

Dutch diploma

I have a Dutch diploma

You are admissible with a havo, vwo or mbo-4 diploma, but some programmes may have set certain additional requirements. You will find the exact requirements on the page of your programme.

Find your programme

Please note: A distinction is made between old and new profiles. Virtually all havo diplomas awarded from 2009 have the new profile, for vwo diplomas this is the case from 2010 onwards. Go to our Dutch page for more information. 

International diploma

I have an international diploma

You can be admitted with an international diploma, provided that the diploma is equivalent to a Dutch diploma. The Student Administration evaluates this before you are admissible. 

We can only evaluate diplomas after you have submitted your application via Studielink and have uploaded readable copies of your diploma and final transcript. We accept documents in the English, German, French or Spanish language. If your diploma is written in another language, you will need to enclose a certified translation (in English, French, German or Spanish).

Language requirements

In many cases, you must provide evidence of your English language ability.
