Information for Prospective Students

In the web application below, called Pathfinder, you will find all the relevant information about studying in the Netherlands, including relevant information on visa, insurance, residential permits and grants. The information is provided and guaranteed by the responsible (government) agencies.

Enter your nationality and age in the space given in the left column and check the boxes to specify your personal preferences. Press the search button and you’ll get a complete overview of the required information sorted by the four main stages of studying in the Netherlands: before arrival, upon arrival, during your study and finishing your studies.

It’s also possible to select the themes relevant to your situation such as Entry & Residence or Finance.

The Pathfinder application has been produced by Nuffic, the organization for the internationalization of the Dutch Higher Education Area.
