Studielink is a national web-based registration database in the Netherlands used for the enrolment of students. Studielink can also be used for organising your registration, payment of tuition fees, signing out and changing your correspondence address. For questions regarding the Studielink application (e.g. logging in, password, how to use Studielink), please contact the Erasmus Student Service Centre.


The first step in the IBA application process is to register in Studielink. 


  1. Access https://www.studielink.nl/ and register before 15th January 2022. When you are a resident of the Netherlands, you can only submit an enrolment application if you use DigiD.  Apply on time for your DigiD as it takes approximately five days to receive your DigiD login details. 
  2. Enter your previous education.
  3. Select Erasmus Universiteit, enter ‘Bachelor International Business Administration (English) (numerus fixus)’, start as ‘first-year’, starting date: '1 September 2022'. DO NOT SELECT 'ADVANCED YEAR'! Even if you have completed your first year elsewhere, you must select 'first-year'. 
  4. You can ignore the emails asking to send your diploma or a copy of your passport / ID to education institution. Instead you will upload these documents to the RSM Online Application Form (OLAF).


For Numerus Fixus studies such as IBA at RSM, Studielink opens on the 1 October and closes on 15 January at 23:59 CET (Central European Time). This is not the actual application! Only once you have completed the 2nd step of the process, the  RSM Online Application Form (OLAF), you will be considered an applicant.


As Studielink can be confusing at times, and to help you with the registration we have also created a Studielink instruction manual where you can find further details.
