Infoclips to get you started
The Netherlands might become your new place to live and study. Taking the big leap and moving to another country can be exciting. That's why we like to help you prepare for your new life as a student. Discover more about our country and culture, or find out what's it like to be living in our student cities Apeldoorn, Deventer or Enschede.
And the first tip we can already give you to adapt to the student life here, is that you probably need to have a bike ;)
We can imagine that after you have decided to follow a study programme at Saxion, you want to start your studies as soon as possible. But there are first a few things you'll need to arrange as an international student. Think of (Saxion) Housing, your (health) insurance, immigration procedures. Or maybe you want to apply for a scholarship? Check out our video's and keep an eye on all the startersinformation.

Get a student buddy
The onboarding platform gives you the possibility to get connected to our student buddies.* These student buddies can help you to develop the tools you need to get adjusted to life in the Netherlands and the education system at Saxion. All our student buddies are experienced international students who went through the same transition and started their studies abroad as you’re about to do. So they know exactly what they are talking about and what kind of support you might need!
*You can only get connected to a student buddy if you have been accepted (under condition) to our of Saxion's programmes. Not accepted (yet), but still want to talk to a student? Check the information about IntoSaxion below.
