Once you arrive

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, and you might want to consider other insurances too.
  • Working

    The rules on working in the Netherlands as a student depend on your nationality. So, whether you're from an EU country or not.
  • Public transport

    The Netherlands has excellent public transport. In the Nijmegen and Arnhem area you can get almost everywhere by train or bus.
  • Government

    When living in the Netherlands, you need a citizen service number (BSN). This number is important for all your dealings with the government.

Student services and support
