Study-choice check

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.  

Questionnaire, report, interview and study-choice days

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 at least: 

  • An online questionnaire 
  • An advice report 
  • An interview with a representative of your program about the report (on campus or by telephone/MS Teams/Skype)

The study-choice check of most programs includes mandatory additional (online) activities (representative educational experience), such as a test, a video lecture, a presentation, and/or an assignment.

The study-choice check will be finalised with the study-choice days, for which you can sign up soon. 

The dates for the Data Science study-choice days are set for:

  • Thursday February 16th 2023 at TiU
  • Tuesday March 28th 2023 at TU/e
  • Tuesday April 18th 2023 at TiU
  • Thursday June 8th 2023 at TU/e

The dates for the Applied Mathematics study-choice days will be announced soon. Please check this page and/or your e-mail (don't forget the spam folder) to be the first to know! 

Is the study-choice check outcome binding?

Completing the study-choice check is mandatory, but the outcome does not influence your admission to the program. The main purpose of the study-choice check is to help you reflect on your choice of program and the fit between the program and you. Consider the check a useful way to prepare yourself for your studies.  

If the outcome is positive, and their appears a good fit between the program and you, you can take it as a good sign.  

If the outcome indicates that the fit between you and the program is not very good, that means we recommend that you do further research into this program and others.  

What to do if the outcome is not so good?

It may not be immediately clear what to do if the study-choice check indicates that the fit between the program and you is only so-so or even poor. 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 contact form.

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.
