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.


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 6 January 2020.
  • The September enrolment starts Monday 24 August 2020.

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

  • From 17 until 21 August 2020 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 2019 and for students starting in September on 25 August 2020. 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 24 August and 28 August 2020.

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 is insufficient for the programme 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.


Once you have registered for a bachelor programme, you will owe Tio the full amount of the tuition fee, even if you have not actually taken any classes yet. It is possible, however, to cancel the agreement. After your application, you have a fourteen-day period for reflection during which you may cancel the agreement free of charge. After that period, you may still cancel the agreement, although you will at least owe the registration fee. Once you have registered for a bachelor programme, Tio incurs costs in order to offer you and your fellow students the high-quality education you expect. In the event of termination the Student will owe a reasonable fee as referred to in Section 411 Book 7 of the Civil Code.

  • In the event of cancellation in the period between 1 July 2020 and 31 August 2020 (between 1 November 2019 and 31 December 2019 for the January enrolment) the reasonable fee referred to in subclause 3 will be recorded in principle at 25% of the Study programme fee.
  • In the event of termination during the academic year (after 31 August 2020 for September enrolment and after 31 December 2019 for January enrolment) the reasonable fee is in principle calculated as follows:
    A. (number of commenced months prior to the termination / 12 months) * Study programme fee
    B. 25% of the Study programme fee

Study programme fee is taken to mean: the sum of the tuition fee and the price of the optional courses and seminars. The full terms and conditions and the  cancellation form are available at  tio.nl/en/cancellation. If you are still  uncertain about your study choice, you may submit a request for conditional  registration to the student  administration department before 1 July (1 November for January enrolment). For more information, please see the general terms and conditions.
