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.
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.
You need a suitable place to live during your studies. A place within easy distance of the campus and where you can feel at home. The HAN Housing Office helps international students like yourself find a room. Are you from outside the EU/EEA? You get priority: a guaranteed room. From the EU/EEA? You can go on the waiting list.
“I got clear instructions about my room through email when I was still in my home country. All steps from reservation to payment can be done online. I’m now living in Helix. It’s very new and only a 10-minute walk to school. An ideal place for 1st-year students.”
Vi Thi Thao Pham, 1st year student from Vietnam
