Admission Requirements

At Webster University we look for high potential individuals with a global mindset, who are not only motivated to succeed academically, but also to thrive in society. We are proud to welcome students from different countries and backgrounds with the belief that embracing such diversity can only contribute to their overall development and enhance their experiences both inside and outside of the classroom. The Board of Admissions reviews every application carefully to decide who will be offered a placement.

Graduate Applicants

Application Form: The process begins with the submission of your online application form and payment of the application fee. The application fee can be paid by credit card. Applicants are required to upload a number of supplemental items to support their application. These are listed below.

Supplemental items: After receiving your application form you will be able to upload the following remaining documents into your application:

  • Copy of a recent CV or Resume
  • Letter of motivation (one page) stating why you want to pursue the program and how it ties into your current career or future professional goals
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • Certified copies of your transcripts
  • TOEFL 550/80 or IETLS 6.5 scores if applicable. If you will be taking a TOEFL test outside of Webster and would like to have your results automatically sent to us, please use the following code: 0548.

Acceptance: After viewing the completed application package, the Admissions Committee will make a formal acceptance decision. An admissions representative will then contact you informally to let you know whether or not you have been accepted to Webster University, and if so, an official acceptance letter will be emailed to you. 

Enrollment and Tuition Payment: If an acceptance is offered, you will need to pay a deposit of €1000 to secure your enrollment. Students who require a Visa to enter the Netherlands are required to deposit €10,000. The deposit includes a confirmation fee of  €250. This is a non-refundable fee which reserves your seat in the program. The confirmation fee can only be applied towards your first tuition bill. Please read our withdrawal policy (PDF). This policy is effective immediate and supersedes any and all previous policies. Webster Leiden Campus reserves the right to amend its policies and terms of service as required.
Your enrollment is not complete until your deposit is received by bank transfer. Credit card payments are possible on and off campus in Leiden. 

Registration: Once your payment has been received and registration for classes opens, you will be contacted by your Academic Advisor to register for your classes. If you are in need of a student Visa to enter the Netherlands, your visa process will also start at this time.
