What is Studielink and how does it work?

Studielink is a national web-based system in the Netherlands used for the enrolment of students. Studielink is used for student registration, payment of tuition fees and changing your correspondence address. It is the first step of the application process for RSM.

Studielink can be confusing at times, and to help you with the registration we have created a Studielink instruction manual.

After you have registered in Studielink, you will receive a link to the Online Application Form (OLAF) where you can complete your application.

I've been offered admission but my Studielink status still says "Enrolment application submitted". When can I expect this to change?

Once your offer is unconditional, RMS will confirm your enrolment and the Studielink status will change.

You should check the conditions of your offer in the Online Application Form 'OLAF' under the 'Offers' section. Instructions on how to make your offer unconditional are listed here

If your offer of admission has already been made unconditional, your admission will be confirmed in Studielink, but this process will only start around the end of June. Until then your Studielink status will say "The educational institution has yet to determine whether your previous education level is sufficient”.
