Candidates who meet the basic entrance requirements, and have passed the entrance examination, can be enrolled as students, provided the tuition fee is paid each year before 1 September.

After having been admitted, students may enrol as a student at the Conservatory. It is possible to do this online by using Studielink, the portal for enrolment in higher education in the Netherlands. Studielink allows students to arrange their applications for (re-)enrolment, cancellation or change of address at a single location on-line. With the Proof of Admittance students will receive further information on how to use Studielink.

After enrolment, students of the professional training programmes receive a student card via the Amsterdam University of the Arts. This card allows free access or price reductions on tickets for concerts, professional literature, sheet music etc., and for activities organised by the Amsterdam University of the Arts.
