Looking to immigrate to the Netherlands (NL) for your studies? Great choice, it’s really nice here.
You may need to make immigration arrangements to travel into our country. What it is you need to do (arrange a visa? a residence permit? nothing?)? How much will it cost and how long does it take? No need to stress, we have all the answers.
And by Dutch law, students cannot apply for a study residence permit themselves, so relax.
Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) assists (un) conditionally admitted students with arranging any immigration formalities. Once you’re (un) conditionally admitted, your faculty will register you in the immigration system and team Immigration (International Office, EUR) will reach out to you with more information and an invoice.
