Obtaining a visa
Candidates who are citizens of the member states of the European Union, do not need a visa to study in the Netherlands. Candidates who are citizens of countries other than the member states of the European Union need to apply for a visa. We will assist these candidates in obtaining their visa through our Student Affairs Office.
