Wageningen University Application

The application to enter Wageningen University is not difficult if you already have the basic requirements. The first things you have to do is open the university website. See, is there any program that you want to apply, and if yes, just go to application requirements and see “How To Apply“. There’s no application fee.

Scholarship: WU Scholarship. I dont know how to apply. I didnt find about this on their website. But they award me this scholarship around 25,020 euro. So, better you ask about this scholarship to the university.

Anne Van den Ban Scholarship. you must already be accepted for their chosen study at Wageningen. click here for more information.

If you dont have your IELTS or other requirements. You still can apply and they will send you email to ask some documents that you havent submitted yet.

I read their website, there is a scholarship from Anne Van den Ban Scholarship Fund. I want to apply this scholarship however the faculty should nominate me as a candidate to receive the scholarship. I sent the foundation email about my willing to apply the scholarship and this is their answer.

Dear Hani

Thanks you for your e-mail.

We changed our procedure for this year a little bit, this means that for the time being we have enough information. Our scholarships will be combined with the WUR fellowships. Before your application for a fellowship can be considered, you first have to be nominated for a WUR Fellowship. This will be occur somewhere in May, we will contact you again as soon as the nominations are known.

I confirm your pre-application.

Please find in the attachment some information about the Anne van den Ban Fund (ABF). This info can be helpful in filling in the application form later on.

Please realize that the ABF is not a rich one. It therefore is highly recommended also to apply at other foundations (see the NUFFIC grant finder). This only will benefit you because they normally offer higher monthly allowances than we can do.

If you sent also a request to the Wageningen University Fund you don’t get an answer, this response is also on behalf of the WUF. Hence, we don’t save any documents you sent us attached with this request, so if any send then again together with a completed application form later on.

With kind regards,

Ypie Blauw

On 3 April 2012 I got email from faoundation to re-apply the scholarship. However I decided not to apply the scholarship because I  read their website that they cant give a huge amount. So, i thought that if I got scholarship, still i need a lot of money to study in Wageningen University.

Dear candidate,

In my last email I confirmed your pre-application. And I told you that we will contact you again as soon as the nominations for the WUR Fellowships are known. But because we get again a lot of applications it will cause too much time to wait till May to match our two lists I wish to gather more information about you before that time.

So please find in the attachments:

– An application form;

– Some information about the Anne van den Ban Fund (ABF).

I wish you lots of success with filling in the application form look forward to your reply. Please return it only by email and add a CV, a motivation letter and if any also recommendations. Please don’t add any other documents.

With kind regards,

Ypie Blauw

On 13 April 2012, I sent email to admission office that ı need to withdraw my seat in Wageningen University. I didnt know what happend after that because I didnt get any reply for them. So i thought, I they already accepted my withdraw email. However on 28 June 2012, The university sent email that I got scholarship (Wow..even I didnt remember if I apply for the scholarship).

DearMs Hani Sulastri Hamid,

Herewith I want to inform you that we intend to award you a WU scholarship for the MSc Programme International Development Studies at Wageningen University starting September 2012.

The WU scholarship is a full tuition waiver for the academic years 2012/2013 and 2013/2014 (total Euro 25.020,-).

We hope that with this scholarship you will have sufficient financial means to start your study in Wageningen in September 2012. The scholarship will only be awarded after you have confirmed that you have sufficient financial means to cover all other costs for your study at Wageningen University (travel, living, housing, health insurance, visa costs etc.)

Please inform me as soon as possible whether you will accept the scholarship and will start your study in September 2012 or not. If affirmative the Student Service Centre will send you an invoice for the pre-payments needed and contact you for further registration procedures (visa etc.) as soon as possible. If you will not respond to this e-mail before July 6th , 2012, we will assume that you have not accepted the scholarship and as a consequence we will withdraw the scholarship offer.

I hope we can welcome you in Wageningen at the start of the new study year.

With kind regards,

Eric de Munck
