Welkom bij de aanmeldprocedure van je studie aan het Koninklijk Conservatorium. Hieronder worden alle stappen van het aanmeldproces uitgelegd en het enige dat je hoeft te doen, is ze in deze volgorde te doorlopen.

Als je op het kruisje klikt krijg je meer informatie te zien. Nadat je de eerste drie/vier stappen op de website hebt doorlopen, verlaat je onze website om naar Studielink te gaan. Vanuit Studielink ontvang je een email met een link naar Osiris Aanmeld, een onderdeel van ons Studentenadministratiesysteem. Op die pagina upload je alle gevraagde documentatie. Mocht je gedurende het proces vragen hebben, neem dan contact op de studentenadministratie.

Bekijk ook de algemene toelatingseisen, deze zijn van toepassing op alle aanmeldingen.

Studielink is the online registration system for higher education in the Netherlands. When you register, you will also automatically be registered with DUO (Dienst Uitvoerend Onderwijs), the agency that arranges student financing, among other things.

  • If you are a Dutch student, log on with your DigiD. If you do not yet have one, it can be requested at www.digid.nl. It could be several days before you receive the log-in codes.
  • If you are an international student, log on with a user name and password that you will be able to create for yourself in Studielink.
  • Apply for the course of your choice (the first step in your ‘to do’ list) under Royal Academy/Royal Conservatoire The Hague. Complete each step in the screen. Detailed instructions and help with the process is available on the website of Studielink. 

To Studielink

Note: you will now leave the website of the Royal Conservatoire. You are not done with the admission process after registering with Studielink. Please read the further instructions below first.

Start by collecting all the documents you will need to register for your entrance exam.

  1. CV
  2. Motivation form (see below)

The decision on whether you will be permitted to sit the entrance exam (international candidates will sometimes be allowed to sit a NON-LIVE entrance exam. This is decided on a case by case basis and is not automatically valid for all courses. Please ask your department for further information.) is based on the information and the answers you have entered and the documents and sound and visual recordings you have uploaded. The Student Administration Office will inform you by e-mail before 1 April 2019 whether you will be invited for an entrance exam.

Most students are admitted during the so-called ‘admissions week’ in April.

Admissions week is in April (click here for the specific dates). In the weeks after your entrance exam you will be notified by e-mail and/or in a letter whether you have been provisionally admitted to the course or have been rejected.

Notification that you have been provisionally admitted to the course means that you meet the necessary standard for admission but are not yet certain of a place (for example, because the decision depends on the number of places on the course). 

You are only certain of being able to enter the Royal Conservatoire and start studying in September of the following academic year when you are formally notified that you have been admitted.

EU/EEA students
Bachelor and Master students must have sufficient command of written and spoken English to follow their course at the Royal Conservatoire. If it is found during the admission procedure that a student is not sufficiently proficient in English, students from an EU/EEA country are obliged to follow a language course. You will then be required to follow a language course and obtain a certificate of proficiency during the first year of the course (propedeuse).

Non-EU/EEA students
If you have been admitted to a Bachelor or Master programme and you are from a country outside the EU (with the exception of Canada, New Zealand, the United States or South Africa), you must demonstrate that your level of proficiency in English is sufficient before 1 September 2019.

You can demonstrate your command of English with your score on any of the following English language proficiency tests:

  • TOEIC 
  • or Cambridge English (FCE/CAE/CPE). 

The test scores are valid for two years and your score must be valid as of 1 September 2019. 
The minimum standard is a score of 6.0 in the IELTS test or level 80 in the TOEFL.

Certificates from the Institutional TOEFL test, the TOEFL ITP test or other langauge proficiency tests will not be accepted.

Click here for more information about the language proficiency standards, language courses and language proficiency tests.

If you are admitted, you must ensure that all the necessary documents are submitted. 
The deadline to submit the proof of your English language proficiency (see step English proficiency) is 1 September.

When you are admitted you will receive information via e-mail and Studielink about payment of tuition fees.

Only when you have fulfilled all registration requirements will you be enrolled as a student. So make sure that you have submitted all requested documents before 1 September 2019.

More information on the fees and payment.

We wish you a lot of success with your application.

Non-EU/EEA students who are admitted to the programme they applied for need an entree visa and/or residence permit. You also need to make other practical arrangements before you come to the Netherlands and when you arrive here. Please check the website for international students coming to the Netherlands for all procedures, information and contact info.
