To apply for a course in a Dutch educational institution, candidates can complete their registration via Studielink which is an official portal. Studielink guides applicants with step-by-step enrolment process. Some institutions allow students to directly apply for their courses if they fulfil all the eligibility requirements. Before applying, students just need to make sure that they qualify for the desired course and have all the required documents with them in correct form.

Employment opportunities

The students whose courses will run for more than 90 days need to apply for Provisional Resident Visa or Machtiging tot Voorlopig Verblijf (MVV) which will allow them to stay in Netherlands for 6 months. Once the students will arrive in Netherlands, the host institution will have to apply for Resident Permit on behalf of the student.

Before apply for MVV, the student must keep intact the following documents:
