Studielink is the common registration and enrolment application system for all non-private institutions of higher education in the Netherlands. 

  • Create a Studielink account: provide personal details (as stated in your passport or ID card) and previous educational information (studies, diplomas and exam results). 

    Official residents of the Netherlands have to use their DigiD to login to Studielink.
    International students create an account with their own username and password.
  • Once your account is created you can ‘add a new enrolment’ by indicating the study programme of your choice under the ‘University of Applied Sciences – Royal Academy/Royal Conservatoire The Hague’. Follow carefully the steps and at the end confirm your application.  Detailed instructions are provided on the website of Studielink to assist you with the procedure.

After your enrolment via Studielink is confirmed, you will receive an e-mail by the Student Administration of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. In this e-mail, you’ll find your personal login info, which will grant you access to the Academy’s own online application system Osiris, where you can upload your portfolio and other required documents.

The digital submission should include:

  • your letter of motivation 
  • your resume 
  • your portfolio 
  • your assignment description including the (audiovisual) sketches 
  • scanned version of your diploma’s

All written materials should be in Dutch or English. Detailed information about the requested material can be found on the Admission requirements page. 

All candidates have to submit their portfolio and full set of required documents before May 1 (due to VISA procedures)

In case you can’t meet the submission deadline we ask you to contact the Interfaculty coordinator and head of department.

Selected candidates will be invited for an admission interview. European candidates are expected to be physically present at this interview; for candidates, outside of Europe we will propose a Skype meeting.
