Information for incoming students

Latest update 26 November 2021

On 26 November the government announced additional COVID measures. Fortunately, education remains open, in the daytime as well as in the evenings. The maximum group size of 75 persons in an independent room where education is given remains in force. 

It is still important to comply with the basic measures. For the catering industry, amateur sport and non-essential shops, additional restrictive measures have been announced from 28 November. Catering, sports facilities and X will be closed from 17:00. The new measures will apply at least until 19 December.   

Keep an eye on Brightspace for updates on whether lectures will be given online or physically. 

How do we ensure a safe campus?  

  • Stay at home if you have corona-related symptoms and get tested;  
  • The use of a facemask s mandatory in all buildings while moving around;  
  • There is a maximum group size of 75 people per independent room (excluding staff). This does not apply to rooms used for examinations and exams; 
  • Keep to the basic rules: wash your hands often, do not shake hands and thoroughly and sneeze and cough into your elbow; 
  • Give space, 1.5 metres is a safe distance.    
  • Do the Quarantine Check and follow the quarantine guidelines;    
  • You are advised to use (voluntary) free self-tests twice a week, even if you don’t have symptoms. In case of corona symptoms, make an appointment with the Municipal Health Service or call 0800-1202.

Registration deadlines for the 2021/2022 academic year

For applicants with a Dutch education background

  • For programmes without an enrolment quota (‘numerus fixus’), for which taking part in the study choice check is optional, you may register until 1 September. You can no longer use the study choice.

For applicants with a non-Dutch education background

The application deadline of 1 April remains unchanged. Due to the worldwide anti-coronavirus measures, not everyone will be able to provide the required information before this deadline. Unfortunately, it is not possible to extend this deadline because we would then be unable to complete the admission procedure correctly. Therefore, if you weren’t able to submit the necessary documents in time, you will unfortunately not be able to enrol for the 2021-2022 academic year.

Exchange Programmes second semester 2021-2022

The TU Delft Executive Board has decided to allow physical exchange programmes to take place for the second semester of the academic year 2021-2022.

The risk of infection from COVID-19 remains unpredictable. Today, no one can say with certainty which Covid-19 restrictions in the Netherlands will continue to be necessary in the second semester, how the educational situation will develop and what it will look like (blended, online, on campus). However, we must emphasize the exchange student physical presence at TU Delft is required regardless of the number of courses delivered online. A purely virtual mobility is not an option for any student.

Non-EU citizens must decide and adhere to the admission acceptance and payment deadlines to ensure receipt of an entry visa on time.

It is the students own decision and responsibility as to whether they start a planned stay abroad at TU Delft. Information to help you make this decision can be found in our disclaimer. Students who have applied for an exchange programme for the second semester will receive an email regarding this.
