Numerus Clausus and Decentralised Selection

Due to an increasing numbers of students, the TU Delft bachelor programme Aerospace Engineering has determined a fixed capacity, a numerus clausus, of 480 new students that can be admitted into the bachelor’s degree programme for academic year 2016 - 2017.

There are three ways of gaining access to programmes subject to a numerus clausus: decentralised selection, direct admission, and a weighted lottery (also known as the central section or drawing of lots). For 2016-2017, 50% of the total capacity is reserved for the decentralised selection, thus 240 places.

The direct admission and central selection will be discontinued after September 2016. This means that all applicants wanting to start the bachelor programme Aerospace Engineering need to participate in the decentral selection procedure as of 2017 – 2018.

For more elaborate information on Numerus Clausus and Decentralised Selection see the following webpage.
