If you wish to come to the Netherlands to study at Saxion University of Applied Sciences, you need to check if you need a visa and a residence permit. If you are a citizen or an official resident of a country not belonging to the EU or EEA countries, you require an 'Authorisation for temporary stay' or entry visa (MVV). With this entry visa you are allowed to enter the Netherlands and apply for a residence permit. The application for the residence permit is compulsory.
You can use the Residence Wizard on the website of the Dutch Foreign Police (IND) to see if you require an entry visa (MVV). In some cases you do not need an MVV but you do need to apply for a residence permit after your arrival in the Netherlands. In other cases a residence permit is also not necessary.
In all cases Saxion's International Office will apply for your visa and residence permit.
