Choosing the right bachelor's degree program increases your chances of success. We will help you by looking at whether the program you have applied for is a good match. This study-choice check is mandatory for all Dutch bachelor's degree programs that do not have a selection procedure.
After you have submitted your application to Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in Studielink, the Dutch enrollment portal, you will get an invitation to do the study-choice check.
The study-choice check consists of:
- An online questionnaire
- An advice report
- An interview with a representative of your program about the report
If you live in the Netherlands, the interview will be a part of an in-person event with fun activities such as a lecture, an assignment and the opportunity to meet your fellow prospective students. If you live outside the Netherlands, you will get an invitation to do the interview by phone or Skype.
Psychology & Technology
Before the study choice check day you fill in the Capacities & Motivation questionnaire. You receive a study-choice advice about your abilities and skills and a study-choice advice about your motivation for choosing the program and orientation on the program. These advices are expressed in three colours: green, red or orange.
During the study choice check day you receive another advice after the Psychology & Technology test; your score on the test. A comparison of your score with the scores of other participants of the study choice check is also expressed in the colours green, red or orange.
The combination of these three advices decides if you have an interview with an assessment agency, a study advisor or a student.
Completing the study-choice check is mandatory, but the outcome does not influence your admission to the program. Consider the check a useful way to prepare yourself for your studies.
If the outcome is positive, you can take it as a good sign.
If the advice is negative, that means we recommend that you do further research into this program and others.
It may not be immediately clear what to do if you receive a negative recommendation. To help you, we offer the option to talk to one of our study-choice coaches: to discuss topics like what to do next, how to find a bachelor's degree program that matches your skills and interests and how to ask the right questions to determine a good match. To request a conversation with a study-choice coach, send an email via the contactform.
If you have questions that do not have anything to do with the study-choice check outcome, for instance about the contents of a bachelor's degree program, please contact the program’s study advisor. Look for contact details on the homepage of that program or click on one of the bachelor programs below.
