Pick a programme

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.

Start your application

After your enrolment via Studielink is confirmed, you will receive an e-mail from 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: 

  • portfolio in PDF format
  • Completed MAR application form (a word document will be available to download) 
  • copies of all previous degree qualifications or undergraduate diplomas
  • copy of your passport, open to the page with your photo and personal information 
  • a recent passport photo 

Find detailed information about the requested material on the Admission requirements page.

Priority deadline for applications, and ALL non EU/EEA applications: March 1, 2018
Final deadline EU/EEA applications: May 1, 2018

Once your completed application has been received by the department, it will join others and be assessed by the applications committee, made up of members of the MAR teaching team. They will jointly decide if your application can go forward to this next step, which is to invite you for interview. If yes, you will be given the option of being personally present in The Hague, or interviewed via Skype. If the committee decides your application cannot go to this next step, you will be informed of this by email.

Your official enrolment at the Master Artistic Research programme is completed upon payment of the tuition fees. Related information will be sent to you by our student administration office via e-mail.

Once you are officially registered as a student at the KABK, you will receive your student card and a proof of enrolment.
