Blockchain technology shows great potential for financial or logistical applications, however the potential in education has not yet been explored. Application processes in higher education for programs like Erasmus+ have hard requirements for authenticity and data integrity, but offer only little to none privacy to the applicant. Traditional technologies can meet the requirements, but are unable to provide the applicant with a reasonable amount of privacy. This thesis researched the potential of blockchain technology for providing applicants in the Erasmus+ program with a Self-sovereign Identity by giving them the full and only control over their personal data. The research findings were implemented in the StudyBits project in collaboration with Quintor B.V. The findings showed that the purpose-built blockchain Hyperledger Indy can be used successfully to automatize application processes and provide applicants with an Self-sovereign Identity.
