The Study Check is an important step in your application process. 

Study Check

It’s important that you choose a programme you enjoy and that helps you to reach your goals. The Study Check lets you check whether Business Innovation is the right choice for you. It's a mandatory step if you want to do any full-time bachelor's degree in the Netherlands.

The Study Check comprises the following steps:

  1. Complete an online questionnaire at home.
  2. If applicable, complete a homework assignment* at home.
  3. Participate in the Study Check session at Inholland. If you live abroad, we'll invite you to a Skype session or telephone call. The session usually consists of a chat about your motivation, to see whether you match with the programme. 
  4. You will receive a personal programme recommendation. You will receive a written recommendation by email within a few days.

* Homework assignment
Business Innovation does not require you to complete an assignment.

How to register

  1. Apply for a programme through Studielink before 1 May;
  2. You will automatically receive more information about your Study Check in your digital Self-Service;
  3. You can start your Study Check in Self-Service.

Dates 2022

You don’t have to be in the Netherlands to join the Study Check sessions, we offer this online. There's a possibility that the study programme contacts you for an online interview.
If they do, the interview will take place in one of the following weeks (depending on when you have applied):

Week 11 14 - 18 March 
Week 15 16 - 20 April
Week 16 19 - 22 April
Week 26 27 June - 1 July


In some cases, a completed Study Check for one programme leads to an exemption for the other (and vice versa). For example, when you've completed the Study Check for Tourism Management, you will be granted exemption from some related courses. Business Innovation does not grant any exemptions.
