VU Study Choice Check is for anyone who enrols for the first year of a Bachelor's degree programme.
If you apply for multiple Bachelor’s programmes at VU Amsterdam, you will need to complete the Study Choice Check process for all of them. See the webpage of the degree programme for more information about the Study Choice Check activities and requirements for your programme.
VU Study Choice Check also applies if you participate in the Study Choice Check programme of another institution/university.
However, there are a few exceptions:
- For programmes with a selection procedure, different application and registration procedures may apply. Read the Admission Requirements for further information on the Study Choice Check or selection procedure.
- For students who have received a binding recommendation on continuation of studies, the following applies:
- If you apply for a higher education programme after 1 May and you have received a negative recommendation on continuation of studies after 1 May of the same calendar year, the Study Choice Check requirements for the relevant programme apply, but only if the Study Choice Check activity is still scheduled before the start of the new academic year.
- If no Study Choice Check activity is scheduled, you may be exempted from the Study Choice Check requirements. If you have applied for a higher education programme before 1 May and you receive a negative recommendation on continuation of studies after 1 May, you cannot be exempted from the Study Choice Check requirements.
If you have taken part in VU Study Choice Check, but you will not start your programme this year, you will need to participate in the Study Choice Check programme again next year. The results of VU Study Choice Check are only valid for one year.
If you are already studying at VU Amsterdam and you wish to switch to another programme, VU Study Choice Check will also apply to you.
If you have interrupted your studies and wish to continue with the same programme, you do not have to participate in the Study Choice Check.
