Netherlands student permit
If you wish to study in Netherlands, you must know the Netherlands student permit requirements. For both long-term and short-term study courses, you will require a Provisional Residence Permit (MVV) – an entry permit (or provisional residence permit).
If you want to remain in the country for more than three months, you must apply for a residency permit in addition to your entry permit (VVR). This is similar to a study permit, which allows you to remain in the country for the duration of your course. This permit can be extended for an additional three months.
Language requirement to study in Netherlands
For postgraduate and PhD courses, English-language study programs are available. The English language is spoken by more than 90% of the population. A basic command of the English language is required. Universities in the Netherlands recognize the following test scores:
- PTE Academic
Working while studying
If they have a work permit, students from non-EU countries will work here during their course. The permit can be applied for on your behalf by your employer. During the school year, international students can work up to sixteen hours a week and full-time during their vacations.
How do I apply for the study permit (MVV)?
Once you get an approval letter from the university, the process should be initiated by your university. If this does not occur, you may contact them directly. You may apply for an entry permit at a local embassy or consulate in your country after the university’s request is accepted.
The MVV can be collected after three months.
The time it takes to process is normally one month, but it varies depending on your nationality and other factors.
