Fellowships are available from the Netherlands Fellowship Programme (NFP) for nationals of a limited number of countries. Candidates who wish to apply for such a fellowship should begin the application procedure as soon as possible.

  • Apply for admission directly to our institute. We assess your application and decide whether or not to admit you to the short course. You can apply on our website. First choose the course from the course overview 2014 and  course overview 2015 and than apply for the course of your interest.
