Register for a bachelor programme 

Thank you for your interest in one of the bachelor programmes at Tio University of Applied Sciences. You can register easily and digitally for bachelor programme at Tio via the button below.

We are in the midst of updating the Tio website with information for the new academic year 2019/2020. It is therefore momentarily not possible to apply to one of our bachelor programmes online. We apologize for the inconvenience. For more information in regard to applications and admission please send an email to internationaloffice@tio.nl or call us at +31 (0)30 7 999 000.


Students with disabilities (dyslexia, dyscalculia, physical impairments or chronic illnesses, for example) are offered equal opportunities for academic success as much as possible. You can disclose your impairment when you register, or during your initial interview. In collaboration with your study coach, you can discuss which arrangements Tio can provide you.

Start of the bachelor programmes

  • The January enrolment starts Monday 8 January 2018.
  • The September enrolment starts Monday 27 August 2018.

Prior to the academic year the introductions days, the kick-off day and welcome days take place:

  • From 20 until 24 August 2018 the introduction days take place.
  • Tio kicks the year off with an inspiring kick-off day, for students starting in January it will take place on 19 December 2017 and for students starting in September on 28 August 2018. Students of all Tio locations attend guest lectures by leading figures from the industry.
  • The welcome days are devoted to meeting fellow students, the student city and student society Cognatio. You take a look behind the scenes at companies in the industry and above all have a lot of fun. The welcome days take place between 27 August and 31 August 2018.

Admissions process

After we receive your registration, Tio will send you a written confirmation of your admission (provided that you meet the pre-education requirements and there is no waiting list). If your pre-education does not sufficiently match the course you wish to take, we will schedule an interview and an assessment. The assessment costs € 80. The admissions committee will decide whether you can be admitted into the programme.


Upon registration study course fees become due in full regardless whether attendance of classes has taken place. It is possible to terminate the study agreement. However, termination will not lead to restitution of study course fees except in the circumstances as set out below. After applying for admission you have a cooling off period of 14 days in which you can terminate the agreement. After this period you may be entitled to a partial restitution of the study course fees (the dates between the parentheses are applicable to 1 January enrolment). If you terminate before 1 July (1 Nov.), 100% of the study course fees will be credited, with the exception of the enrolment fee. If you terminate in July (Nov.) 75% of the study course fees will be credited. If you terminate in August (Dec.) 50% of the study course fees will be credited. There will be no restitution for termination after 31 August (31 Dec.). When in doubt, you can submit a request before 1 July (1 Nov.) to the student administration for a conditional registration. The complete general terms and conditions can be found at tio.nl/en/general_terms_and_conditions. Tio requires termination by registered mail making sure the date of termination is secured. This is also possible via the website (tio.nl/en/cancellationform).
