Admission requirements

Criteria for being admissible to AUC

In order to be eligible for admission to AUC, you will need to meet the following minimum requirements.

Average secondary school GPA

AUC students have on average a secondary school GPA of  ≥7.5 in the Dutch system. When assessing an application we look at grades over a longer period of time to ensure that one poor exam does not receive too much weight. We are also attentive to explanations of why formal grade criteria are not met.

Characteristics of AUC students:

The AUC Admissions Committee looks for students with the following characteristics:

  • academic excellence: you must demonstrate your ability to meet the academic demands of the AUC programme
  • motivation and ambition to study an intensive and broad programme
  • commitment to contribute to AUC's international student and campus life

Conditional offers

If you do not (yet) meet the admission requirements, you can still apply. Small deficiencies in meeting our English and/or maths requirements will not prevent your application from being reviewed and you will be able to work toward rectifying these deficiencies before your intended start date at AUC. Any offer of a place at AUC will be on a conditional basis. The conditions will be specified in the letter offering you a place. You will have to meet those conditions before you can be admitted.
