Arriving at

Schiphol Airport

After your arrival at Schiphol Airport, you can follow the signs at Schiphol Airport that will guide you to the train station beneath the airport. Here you will be able to buy your train ticket at the blue and gray Public Transport Tickets machines.

These can be found at the baggage belts of Arrival 3 and just outside Arrival 3, at the escalators up to Departure 3. From there on you can hop on the train to Nijmegen!

If you can't find your way, please ask for help at the airport’s service desks or people working at the airport. If no one’s available, you can also contact the International Office: +31 26 365 81 32 (available from Mondays - Fridays, 9:00 – 17:00).

We advise you to withdraw € 100,- cash from the bank to pay for your train ticket from Schiphol Airport to Nijmegen. If you can't find your way to the train station or if you have any other questions, please contact us on +31 26 365 81 32 during office hours.

We also advise you to bring cash to cover your first few days in the Netherlands. Bring the rest of your money in the form of a credit card or international bank or debit card. This is much safer than carrying cash with you. There are cash machines all over the Netherlands.

Prior to the introduction on location at HAN, the International Office will be in touch with you online during the summer. As of mid June, we'll send you information about the introduction in 3 separate newsletters. Plus, you can follow us on our International Intro Instagram page. This part of the orientation will give you lots of fun and useful info about studying at HAN and living in the Netherlands. It’s all pretty relaxed. You don’t need to be anywhere in particular for this part. You could be soaking up the sun somewhere on your holiday. HAN International Office will be in touch!

What do you need for the online intro week? A laptop, phone or tablet. Internet connection. Instagram. Comfy chair. Too easy!

Instagram page and newsletters

Study, life, fun. That about sums up the topics on the HAN International Intro Instagram page and newsletters for international students. So, firstly think of practical things like your HANaccount, HANcard, scholarships and immigration matters. Then there’s living in the Netherlands. Think of public transport, finances, health. And the city of Arnhem or Nijmegen. Finally, the fun stuff. Like activities organized by student organizations, learning about the Dutchies, their culture and language. And last but not least, info about what to do in your free time. Check out the Instagram page and the newsletters!

Not able to join us on Instagram? Don't worry! You can find the (upcoming) Instagram info videos we posted and the newsletters we sent below.
