I have not received an application confirmation from the employer

There are two types of application forms used; the external form directly on the employers website and the AcademicTransfer form directly attached to the vacancy. These are mailed directly to the vacancy owner email address. AcademicTransfer doesn't manage the applications but acts as an intermediary.

If you have not received an application confirmation after a few days, we advise you to contact the employer to check whether your application has been received.

Did you apply via our online application form? You will immediately receive a confirmation from AcademicTransfer with a report after we've send your application to the employer. This is not a guaranteed delivery. Only the employer can give you the most up to date status of any application procedure.

I have problems with document upload(s) during my application

The document file size limitations implemented by employers is the most frequently reported issue.

Contact the contact person as described within the vacancy text under Additional information to discuss an alternative method of sending in your application.

For example, you can use a web service to upload large files and send them via a link in your cover letter. Another method is to create PDF files from other file types resulting in reduced file size(s).

Are you missing buttons, elements and/or functionalities that prevent you from uploading a document? Please read more.

E-mail & job alert

I receive less jobs from AcademicTransfer by e-mail (e-mail alert). How can I immediately receive e-mails with new job openings?

You can immediately receive new jobs by e-mail with your AcademicTransfer account. Sign in or create one if you don't already have one. In the e-mail alert settings you can choose the frequency: immediately or every two weeks.

E-mails from AcademicTransfer don't seem to arrive in my mailbox or end up in my spam

Mailbox have mark mails as spam automatically or by the mailbox owner (in the past).

First check your mailbox carefully and also look for the e-mail in the deleted items folder and your spam folder. A search query is the fastest way to find specific mails.

  • If our e-mail does not arrive at your business e-mail address after checking, it is possible the settings of your organisation are preventing the e-mail from arriving properly. Contact us if you want to know more about this.
