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 bank transfer. Applicants are required to submit a number of supplemental items to support their application. These are listed below.

Supplemental items

After receiving your application form your recruiter will call/email you to discuss additional needed documentation. Dependent upon your program, you will need to submit the following documents:

  • Copy of a recent CV or Resume.
  • Letter of motivation (one page) stating why you want to pursue the program, how it ties into your current career or future professional goals.
  • Two letters of recommendation.
  • Certified copies of your transcripts.
  • TOEFL 575/89 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. If you score between 520 and 575 on the paper-based TOEFL (70-89 on the iBT) or between a 5.5 and 6.5 on the IELTS and your GPA is equivalent to 2.5 or higher on a 4 point scale, you are eligible to enroll in the one-semester English as a Second Language (ESL) program. You will need to meet the University’s required English proficiency level before enrolling in the Master program of your choice.


After viewing the completed application package, the Admissions Committee will make an admissions decision. Your recruiter will then contact you informally to let you know if you have been accepted at Webster, and an official acceptance package will be emailed to you. Physical mail is available on request.

Enrollment and Tuition Payment

If an acceptance is offered, you will need to pay a deposit of one course to secure your enrollment. Your enrollment is not complete until your first payment for tuition or living expenses is received by bank transfer. Credit card payments are only possible at the campus in Leiden. The latest possible payment date is 21 days prior to your start date, but we suggest you arrange payment much earlier than this so as to not delay the final step of enrollment.


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.
