Before you arrive

Before you arrive in the Netherlands, you need to arrange some practical matters. You need to organize your accommodation, for example. And, depending on your nationality, you might need to arrange a visa.  

Visa info

To study in the Netherlands, you need the right visas and permits. Are you from the EU/EEA? Then you don’t need any visas or permits. You just need to register at city hall. Are you from a country outside the EU/EEA? Then you need a residence permit. You might also need an entry visa.

Students share their experiences

Different cultures

“The most unique thing at HAN was the interaction with people from different cultures and backgrounds. It was quite shocking that each of us were almost the same age, yet we’re so different.” Read more...

Coming out of her shell

“I’ve learned that in a professional environment, if you don’t speak up for your problem or question, people won’t be able to help you. So, I came out of my shell. And it’s great to have a positive influence on the people around you.” Read more...

Learning to be independent

“I needed some time to adjust. But I made friends easily. It comes with a good aura. People would approach me and talk to me. I invited some of them to my house, cooked Jamaican food and we also did other fun things together.” Read more...

Unique experience

“The lecturers teach you, they do their part, but you also have a responsibility of managing your own stuff. Lecturers are always ready to support their students. Even if it is not their task.” Read more...

Once you arrive in the Netherlands

Once you arrive in the Netherlands, you need to know about some other practical issues. For example, about working, insurance, public transport and the government.

  • Insurance

    When coming to the Netherlands to study, you need to have good insurance. Health insurance is the most important. Are you from the EU/EEA? Your health insurance policy in your home country might cover you. Non-EU/EEA students receive health insurance through the financial guarantee. Other useful insurances are liability insurance, repatriation insurance and household contents insurance.
  • Working

    The rules on working depend on your nationality. Are you from the EU/EEA? Then you are free to work in the Netherlands. Are you from outside the EU/EEA? Then you are free to do self-employed work. If you work for an employer, you need a work permit and the hours are restricted. All international students working in the Netherlands must have Dutch public health insurance.
  • Public transport

    The Netherlands has excellent public transport. In the Nijmegen and Arnhem area you can get almost everywhere by train or bus. In the bigger cities, you can also use the tram or metro. To pay for these services you use an OV chip card (OV-chipkaart in Dutch).
  • Government

    When living in the Netherlands, you need a citizen service number (BSN). This number is important for all your dealings with the government. For example, to open a bank account or to visit a doctor. You get a BSN number after registering at city hall.
