Information for incoming students

Latest update 2 July 2021

In the new academic year, we will start according to the government's basic scenario wherein, among other things, the 1.5-metre distance is ended and we can offer 2-3 days of education on campus. Of course we are dependent on the possibilities set by the government, but we will do everything we can to offer you the best possible start of your studies.

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.

Tuition fees

Tuition fees have been paid but you cannot come

If you are unable to come to TU Delft, you must withdraw your enrolment before 1 September, before your enrolment is completed. Please contact the Education and Student Affairs Contact Centre (Contactcentre-esa@tudelft.nl) as soon as possible. If you have already made payments, the Contact Centre will inform you of the procedure and ask you for the details of the bank account to which you want the amount to be transferred. TU Delft will refund the amount to your account after deducting the costs that TU Delft has incurred on your behalf, such as costs for a visa application and accommodation. In addition, reimbursement of the registration fee is not possible.

Reduction tuition fee 2021-2022

Because of Covid, the tuition fee for the 2021-2022 academic year will be reduced. This is a one-off arrangement from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and is applied to all Dutch Universities. Click here for all the information regarding tuition fees.

Introduction Programme

Due to the restrictions on organised events in the Netherlands until 1 September, the introduction period will be different to the standard programmes described on the website. More information.

Exchange

Exchange Programmes first semester 2021-2022

The TU Delft Executive Board has decided to allow physical exchange to take place within Europe and to cancel all exchange programmes with partner institutions outside of Europe, starting September 2021.

Incoming EU exchange students

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 Fall 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 students. It is the student own decision and his/her responsibility as to whether he/she starts a planned stay abroad at TU Delft.

Expectations September 2021

What will the education look like?

In the new academic year, we will start according to the government's basic scenario wherein, among other things, the 1.5-metre distance is ended and we can offer 2-3 days of education on campus. Of course we are dependent on the possibilities set by the government, but we will do everything we can to offer you the best possible start of your studies.

TU Delft is a campus-oriented university. This is why in the new academic year you will be able to count on blended education: online lectures and educational activities on campus. For the time being, large lectures will still be presented online, due to the possible reintroduction of the 1.5-metre distance rule.

On-campus education only possible physically
Our education system cannot be set up in such a way that every lecture is offered both physically and online. Therefore, make sure that in the new academic year you are able to come to campus. We understand that for some people it will be exciting to come back to campus, but we expect that if you are scheduled on location, you will actually be physically present.

What should you take into account before coming back to campus?

Coming to The Netherlands

We advise students coming to the Netherlands to read the Checklist for travel to the Netherlands.

Corona vaccination plan: information for international students

All people 18 years or older living in the Netherlands and registered at the municipality are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.

The first step you need to take is to register at the municipality you (will) live in in order to get your citizen service number (BSN). With the BSN number you can apply for a DigiD (digital identity). With both you are able to request the vaccination.

Further information in a number of languages can be found here.

Source: lci.rivm.nl/richtlijnen/covid-19-vaccinatie (par. 2.3).

For the time being, TU Delft has decided that you may attend campus education without a vaccination certificate. In order to be able to follow and deliver safe education, we hope that everyone who studies at TU Delft will follow the government guidelines when it comes to vaccination and testing.

Second vaccination for international students
If you arrived in the Netherland with just one vaccination for Astra-Zeneca, Pfizer/BioNTech or ModeRNA, you can get the second vaccination in the Netherland. Please schedule an appointment via rivm.nl/vaccinatie2
