You can register for International Business via Studielink. Register preferably before 1 May 2018. After the first semester, you can choose from the specialisations Languages, Technology and Innovation, or Entrepreneurship.
The information below is written from the perspective of pupils currently in secondary education in the Netherlands. If you have been educated elsewhere but are interested in studying International Business, please check the international entry requirements for more information.
We recommend that you apply by 1 May to be admitted to the programme of your choice. You will then take part in the study choice test. The outcome of this test is non-binding. If you meet all the entry requirements, you can enrol in the programme of your choice in September. You can apply between 2 May and 15 August, but in that case the outcome of the study choice test will be binding. A negative study choice advice means that you are inadmissible to the programme.
Havo and vwo
The information below applies to the academic year 2018 – 2019. These entry requirements are published subject to changes in government policy and Saxion regulations.
If you have been awarded a havo or vwo diploma with a subject cluster offered at secondary school level until 1 August 2007, your subject cluster is out of date. An easy way to find out whether your subject cluster is out of date is to check whether your cluster contains numbered subjects, such as Economie 1, Economie 2, Wiskunde A1 or Wiskunde A2.
A havo or vwo subject cluster that is out of date does not give you direct access to higher education. Your diploma will be assessed on the basis of the current havo and vwo subject cluster requirements for the programme of your choice. As a result, your diploma may not meet the entry requirements and you will be deemed ‘inadmissible’ to the programme of your choice. In order to be admitted, you will need to sit a deficiency test before you can be enrolled as a student.
For studying at Saxion you will have to pay a tuition fee. How much tuition you will have to pay depends on your personal situation. Below you will find the default statutory tuition fee.
- Full-time € 2,060 (EU/EEA students)
- Full-time € 7,800 (NON-EU students) (specification)
- Expect to pay a total of around € 700 on books, handouts and other materials during your whole study.
- First-year costs are usually higher; books are needed for the entire programme.
