Frequently Asked Questions about how to complete your enrolment

How can I complete my enrolment?

Please check your messages in your Studielink dashboard regularly. You will be enrolled once you meet all the conditions. Take into account that the processing time is 2-10 working days. A diploma evaluation can often take up to 2 weeks (or even longer in summer).

After your admission you have been informed by fhksa@fontys.nl about how to complete your enrolment. Follow up the actions in that email immediately, so that you can start your study with a good feeling.

 If your enrolment is not yet complete, this can be the cause:

 ·         My personal details have not yet been verified

Please send a copy of your valid passport / ID card (not driving licence) to fhksa@fontys.nl so we can verify your personal details.

Note: all your first names must be written in full and your place of birth must be mentioned. If this is not the case, please also add a birth certificate or proof of residence of your municipality.

·         My previous education details have not yet been verified

In case your previous education is a Dutch HAVO / VWO / MBO4 or – when you start a master- bachelor HBO, your data are automatically entered into Studielink by DUO and automatically verified. You do not have to send us anything.
If you have just completed your final exams in the Netherlands you do not have to send us anything, we assume your details will be verified within 2 weeks.

Did you not obtain your diploma in the Netherlands of do you still see in Studielink that your previous education details have not been verified, please send us the following documents by regular post:

·         a certified* copy of your diploma and grade list
(*certified means that the copy of the original documents needs to be made, signed and officially stamped by your institution, a government office or at the Student Administration Office of Fontys, which confirms that the copy is the same as the original).

·         If your original documents are not written in Dutch, English, German, Spanish or French, please also provide certified, official translations of your documents, into Dutch or English. 

Make sure you send the original certified copies by regular mail. A scan via e-mail or a copy of the certified copy will not be accepted because their authenticity cannot be verified. Please send all documents as soon as you have these, but no later than August 15, to the following address and include your student number:

Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts
Student Administration Office B1.03
Zwijsenplein 1

You can also personally deliver the documents during office hours at our office in room B1.03. (Please check our opening hours before you visit us, due to Corona measures the office is temporarily closed).
In case you bring your original diploma and gradeslist, we can make certified copies as well. The office is closed from July 17, 2020 to August 17, 2020 due to holidays.
If you have recently send / handed in the documents, you don’t have to send them again. It takes around 10 working days to process your documents, please keep that in mind.

·         Arrange payment of tuition fees

In Studielink you have to indicate how you want to pay the tuition fees: from which accountnumber and do you want to pay the entire amount at once or in 10 instalments. These are successive steps that you can take (from mid May 2020) once your personal details have been verified. So check your Studielink dashboard regularly.

For an English taught programme course, you must meet the English language requirement.
