Apply by 1 May at the latest: Leiden or Delft?
The MST programme is a Joint Degree programme. This means that you apply to one university and will be automatically enrolled at two. You must apply via Studielink for the programme in MST at Leiden University by 1 May at the latest. Leiden University will arrange your enrolment at TU Delft; you do not need to do this yourself. Ofcourse you will only pay tuition fees once.

Matching and Programme Choice Check
Once you have registered for a degree programme in Studielink, you will receive the Programme Choice Check from Leiden University in early March. We really want you to study as successfully as possible. To enable us to give you effective help in making your study successful, we ask that you fill in the Programme Choice Check. You can find more information here.

Everyone who has registered on time for the Bachelor’s degree programme in Molecular Science & Technology via Studielink will receive a message from the department about the start of the programme in September and about the introduction activities organised by the study associations CDL and TG.

You will only be enrolled at the university after you have paid the tuition fee. You will then receive a proof of enrolment. You will receive your proof of enrolment documents from TU Delft later. Try to arrange your enrolment and payment before 1 August. This will ensure that you have the computer account that you need to follow the programme before teaching starts.

Programme choice test

TU Delft believes it is important that you choose the degree programme that is right for you. That is why we offer the Programme Choice Check. As soon you have applied via Studielink, you will receive an online questionnaire to fill in. All applicants are given feedback relating to their questionnaire. Depending on the feedback and your chosen degree programme, you may receive an invitation in June to take part in a Programme Choice Check activity organised by the relevant department. These activities vary according to the programme/department, and may include sample lectures, workshops, and individual or group sessions with senior students. The activities are designed to ensure that the degree programme you finally choose is the right one for you.
