Before you can start your studies at VHL, there's quite a bit to sort out. So, it's a good idea to plan ahead. These are all the important deadlines to keep in mind.

Non-European Bachelor students

 What  When

 Visa deadline (file complete and paid)                 15 June
 Visa deadline nationals from Bangladesh/ Ghana/ Pakistan/ Cameroon/ Nigeria             15 May
Date of arrival Late August

Starting your application early, far ahead of the final deadline, helps avoid any unintentional delays in getting your admission and visa approved. It's also a good idea to wrap up your admission well before the payment deadline.

If you're from Bangladesh, Ghana, Pakistan, Cameroon or Nigeria, the visa process takes three months, so the whole application can take up to five months. That's why the deadlines for nationals from these countries are different. An extra screening can be part of the application process. 

We advise all Bachelor students to apply before 1 May to make beneficial use of the study choice check

You can find the application deadlines for the Master River Delta Development on the website of our partner HZ University of Applied Sciences.
