When you come to study in the Netherlands, there are regulations and laws that will affect your stay.  In order to inform you in the best possible way, the Dutch government has created the web application Pathfinder.

With Pathfinder you can find tailor-made information about visa and/or a residence permit, insurance, work and taxes for your situation. Select one of the four situations that applies to you below, enter your nationality and check the boxes to specify your personal preferences. Press the search button and you’ll get a complete overview of the required information relevant to your situation.

Note: As a student, you may not apply for your own Entry Visa and/or Residence Permit. In all cases Saxion's International Office will apply for your Entry Visa and/or Residence Permit.
