Submit Final Documents

In order to start your studies at LUC The Hague you need to be unconditionally admitted to the programme. To receive your unconditional admission statement you need to provide the Admissions Office with the required documents stated in your Online Application Portal. You can view the requirements under Admission Decision.

All students must submit the following unless otherwise stated in their online application portal:

  1. Official proof of obtaining the (secondary school) diploma including transcript
  2. Proof of English proficiency
  3. Proof of Mathematics proficiency

Depending on which diploma you will obtain, you may have additional or fewer requirements. Please view the three categories below and read what and how you need to submit the documents necessary in order to admit you unconditionally to the programme.

Please note! Unless you are unconditionally admitted to LUC The Hague, you cannot start your studies in August.

If your Online Application Portal, under the Admission Decision, still indicates that the Admissions Office has not received the ‘Certified copy’ of your diploma and transcript, you need to submit the required documents for official admission to LUC The Hague. Please find an overview of the diplomas with the additional requirements here

If one of the conditions on your conditional admission statement is submitting sufficient proof of your English proficiency, please view below which tests and scores LUC accepts. Behind each score is listed how you need to provide the Admissions Office with your results. After the Admissions Office has verified your results, the status will be changed to ‘Completed’. Your English proficiency test needs to be verified before the end of July.


English Test  Minimum Overall Score Minimum Component Score Submitting Your Score
 TOEFL IBT 100 22 Paper copy from ETS Institutional code is 6342
IELTS 7.0 6.5 A digital copy of the certificate with all text and verification codes clearly visible

Students obtaining the VWO Diploma have a separate English proficiency requirement: a final grade 8 for English on VWO (combination of SE and CE result). If you have already graduated and have not taken an English proficiency test before you applied for LUC, please contact the Admissions Office for further instructions on how to prove your English proficiency for admission.

All students have a mathematics requirement stated on their conditional admission statement. If you have graduated and obtained the score stated, the status of this requirement will be ‘Completed’. If the status is ‘Not completed’, this means you still need to provide the Admissions Office with sufficient proof.

  • If the condition is that you need to get a certain grade for mathematics in a school subject, providing the Admissions Office with a copy of your official final transcript confirming this will be sufficient in order to meet this requirement. Please view category one on how to submit this document. This item can only be verified, if the transcript is submitted following the strict requirements stated there.
  • If you cannot proof your mathematics proficiency by submitting your final secondary school transcript because you need to prove your mathematics through an external organization (not your school), check category one on how to submit this proof for your educational system.

College Board code to send your sufficient SAT Mathematics results to LUC The Hague: 6708
ACT results need to be sent to your home address first and then posted to LUC The Hague without opening the ACT envelope, as ACT does not post directly to LUC.

Please note! Students who have not obtained the required grade/score/level for mathematics are still allowed to start at LUC The Hague. However, they will be required to take a mathematics diagnostic exam on 26 August 2020 at 13:00. Students who fail this exam need to take a three-week Mathematics Refresher course in January 2021 before the start of the second semester. Please make sure you plan your travel arrangements and holiday plans accordingly after the results of the exam have been released.

The remedial mathematics course is scheduled for January 2021.

  • Three week course starts on 11 January and will end on to 29 January with an exam. The course is each workday from 10:00 to 13:00.
  • Two week course starts on 18 January and will end on 29 January with an exam. The course is each workday from 10:00 to 13:00.

The mathematics diagnostic exam is scheduled on Wednesday 26 August at 13:00. Students will be placed in either the two or three week course based in the exam results. Students scoring really high on the exam will be exempted.

Students who do not meet the math requirement are also encouraged to make use of the student office hours for statistics during the first semester. The student assistants for statistics are available to help with any questions, or problems you may have with statistics.

What can you prepare beforehand?

Students must be able to comprehend:

  • Basic algebra (fractions, roots, and exponentials)
  • Linear and quadratic functions and their graphs
  • Basic exponential and logarithmic functions
  • Basic trigonometric identities
  • Inequalities and derivatives 

We encourage students to do some self-study as this will help you prepare more for the math course at LUC. Self-study material can be found here.
