Duration of programme

The application of candidates for the VU Amsterdam STQ track takes place on the recommendation of the portfolio holder for teaching or the director of education of the relevant faculty. The approval of this portfolio holder or director is a prerequisite for participation in the STQ track. Selection is partly based on the information provided in the questionnaire. If there are more applications than available places, a limited enrolment lottery is held by faculty size. Following a positive decision by the STQ admissions committee, the candidate’s admission to the STQ track is finalized, provided that there are sufficient places.
