4 Things You Should Know Before You Apply to WUR

By Õnne Kask

I'm a Master student in Landscape Architecture & Planning, s...

Submitting applications to universities can be stressful. I know that firsthand since I’ve been there, done that. But sometimes knowledge about the procedure can make it easier. That’s why I have put together a short list of things that are “good-to-know” about how to apply to Wageningen University. Anything from application deadlines to English requirements. Scroll down to find out more.

1. Don’t wait until the last moment to submit your application

The application deadline for our MSc programmes are May 1 for non-EU students and July 1 for EU students. However, if you have your documents ready for application, you can apply right away. Whenever you upload your full application, you will receive an answer about your application within six weeks. Isn’t it great to know if you can be accepted as early as possible? That gives you also much more time to arrange everything you need before moving to Wageningen. Also, if for any reason you are not accepted, you still have plenty of time to apply for other universities.

2. There’s no fixed number of students who are accepted to our programmes

Have you wondered how many students get accepted to WUR programmes? And how will that number affect you? In Wageningen there’s no reason to worry about that. If you meet the admissions requirements, you’re in. Easy as that!  In other words, if you have a relevant BSc degree, a GPA of 70%, and have a good command of English (proven by an English test), there’s no reason for the university to reject to you. Some of our programmes also have additional specific requirements, and of course you have to meet these as well. So, all in all, WUR doesn’t make a list of the candidates and compare them against each other. That is also why, as I mentioned in point 1, you can submit your application any time and also know the results quickly after that.

3. The best way to find out if you are eligible, is to apply

You can send the WUR staff as many emails as you wish, but they won’t be able to tell you if you can be accepted. Of course feel free to contact the study advisor and ask if your BSc is relevant. But, they still will not be able to ensure you that you can start your studies at WUR. That’s because there are many aspects to your application. Only the admissions committee, after receiving your whole package of documents, can make the decision.

4. You need to prove your English proficiency and submit the results on time

All the MSc programmes at WUR are in English. This means that you have to have a good command of the language – you have to present in English, write essays and reports and participate well in group discussions. That’s why there’s no looking past the English requirements. All you need to do is take one of the English exams and make sure you reach the required grades. Also, it is very important that you have the results in before the application deadline. WUR will not accept your results after that. It doesn’t have to be the official diploma as far as you can access the results online. So make sure you take the test well in advance and even, if possible, give yourself the time to re-take the test if you didn’t reach the required level the first time.

So, all I have left to say is that get busy with your application now! Take the English test, write your motivation letter, and get all other documents in order. Upload them, and soon enough you’ll know if you can start your studies at WUR. Interested in more tips like these? Let me know in the comments and I will write you another post soon!

I'm a Master student in Landscape Architecture & Planning, specialising in Land-Use Planning. I come from Estonia, but have lived in the Netherlands for more than five years as I also did my Bachelor in the south of the country. Since I've been an international student on the Dutch grounds for a while, I hope to give you good insights on what it's like to study at the WUR and in the Netherlands in general.

    Good day,
    I’m a graduate student from the University of Panama, but my undergraduate studies were in the United States and I can prove it, is there a chance that I contact the English language tutor to assess my level of English via a Skype interview since I have not taken the TOEFL exam ?

    1. By: Õnne Kask · 06-02-2019 at 08:56

      Hi Donis!
      If you have completed a bachelor in the USA, you don’t have to have any additional assessment. Just make sure you submit both your BSc and MSc diploma for the application.

      Applicants who have completed their Bachelor or Master degree in one of the following countries: Australia, Ireland, Canada (except those educated at universities in Quebec), New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States of America are exempted from submitting an English proficiency test.

      Good luck with your application! Best, Onne

    Hi! I am already accepted to the Food Technology master programm to start on september 2019.
    I am already applying for a scholarship but the results are not published until july/ august. If I dont get the scholarship it will be very difficult to me to go on September 2019 due to financial reasons. Is it posible to defer my admission to 2020-21.?

    I am 100% sure I want to study to Wageningen however the dates depends more on financial reasons.

    Thanks

    1. By: Õnne Kask · 30-04-2019 at 12:36

      Hi Rocío,
      I hope it works out with the scholarship! Otherwise, you cannot defer your application, but have to uplaod your documents again for next year’s admission. But since you have all documents ready already, that should be easy 🙂

      Dear Bidisha,
      The master’s programme Earth and Environment in Wageningen is an Internationally oriented programme. The best to check if you are admissible to the programme is to start the enrolment process. If you do not meet the requirements you will get notified what is missing and how you can attain this.

      But generally, students of universities (of applied sciences) with a bachelor’s degree in Earth Science (Geoscience), Physical Geography, Environmental Sciences, Biology (Ecology), Chemistry, Physics or Engineering are appropriate for admission to this programme.

      You can find further information in the WUR webpage Master’s Earth and Environment WUR.

      I hope I have been of some help. Please do not hesitate to contact students@wur.nl if you require any further assistance.

      Kind regards,

    This section covers all you need to know about the process of moving to Italy. When it comes to moving your goods with you, you should be well-covered in terms of options. Depending on where you are moving from, you can have your belongings shipped by road, air, or sea. The option you go for depends only on how fast you would like your items to arrive and your budget. However, if you can have them shipped by road, this is likely going to be your best option, as it is relatively affordable and fast.

Then they will send out invitations to apply to the selected candidates.

    I am currently a Bachelor’s student in Canada that has been accepted to a MSc programme at Wageningen. I am in the final year of my BSc and so I have been admitted on the condition that I obtain my degree before I start the MSc programme. I am wondering if this makes me (in)eligible for scholarships since I do not have my degree in hand right now?

    Hi!

    A couple of days ago I was accepted into the Master of Environmental Sciences at WUR. However, I am looking for a scholarship to pay for my studies.

    I’m from Venezuela and there’s no scholarship on the list that could help me. Are there other scholarships that are not contemplated on the website where I can apply?

    Thank you!

    Hi, I’ve been accepted to one of WUR master program for September 2021 intake, due to unable to fulfill the payment I need to reapply for September 2022 intake. Is there any guarantee of getting accepted if you have accepted a year before and can you use the same document (eg: motivation letter) as last year for reapplying? Thank you!

    Hello,
    My daughter is interested in applying for BSc in Environmental Science,
    She is in Grade 12-American Curriculum, took the SAT & IELTS.
    She took the Math & Science prerequisites in Grade 11 & 12.
    Is she eligible to apply?
    What are her chances of getting accepted,
    Thank you for replying

    1. By: Paula · 05-11-2021 at 13:58

      Hi Ruba,

      Thank you for reaching out to us! Excuse me for getting back a bit later.

      At our university all students who meet the requirements get accepted. To study a BSc with U.S. diploma you need to have a High School Diploma + at least 4 AP exams assessed by the College Board and graded with a 3, 4 or 5. Also, for Environmental Sciences Mathematics + Chemistry + Physics are mandatory subjects (https://www.wur.nl/en/Education-Programmes/Bachelor/study-orientation/Admission/General-subject-requirements.htm). You can find all this information at the website https://www.wur.nl/en/Education-Programmes/Bachelor/practical-information/Admission.htm. And also how to get in contact with the Student Service Centre.

      I would also suggest visiting the Virtual Open Day 25 November. You can attend presentations of the bachelor’s programmes and your daughter can talk to teachers and students. You can find the schedule for this event at https://www.wur.nl/en/Education-Programmes/Online-Open-Day.htm.

      Best,

    Hello,
    I have completed my B.Sc in Agriculture from Bangladesh last year, and I think I have all the eligibility to apply here at WUR in a Masters Program. Can I apply for more than one MSc program during an application window? Are there any application fees for applying to a Masters’s program? and what’s the probability of getting a scholarship if I am selected for a Masters’s program. Thanks in advance.

    1. By: Paula · 05-11-2021 at 14:54

      Hi Sadiqul,

      You can find all the information about applying at https://www.wur.nl/en/Education-Programmes/master/practical-information-masters/Apply-for-a-Master-programme.htm. You can apply for master’s. There are unfortunately not many scholarships. You can find a list at https://www.wur.nl/en/Education-Programmes/master/practical-information-masters/Scholarships-for-international-masters-students.htm.

    How long it takes to send an acceptance or rejection regarding scholarships? I am asking about scholarships which do not need to apply for it separately, and keep in mind that I have accepted for M.Sc. program and my application was considered for scholarships.

      Dear Hassan,

      Thank you for your question. Most scholarship selection results will be communicated around half May.
