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

  • 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.
    Create a Studielink account: provide personal details (as stated in your passport or ID card) and previous educational information (studies, diplomas and exam results).
  • Once your account is created, you can ‘add a new enrolment application’. Indicate the study programme of your choice from the list generated when you choose ‘Royal Academy of Art / Royal Conservatoire’ in the drop down menu 'Educational Institution'. Follow carefully the steps and at the end confirm your application.
