Start appointment

Student Services will help you through the necessary procedures at the start of your UvA career.

Start Appointment

1. Moving to a different country or city may seem like a hassle. Student Services helps you through the procedures. Starting with the enrolment procedure - while you're still abroad: 

  • Arranging a visa/residence permit (if applicable)
  • Signing up for the introduction programmes
  • Preparing for your arrival in Amsterdam

2. After you've successfully submitted your file for immigration, you will be invited to book a Start Appointment during which we will take care of:

  • Your student card
  • Your residence permit (not applicable to EU/EEA students)
  • Registering with the municipality of Amsterdam (or Diemen), which will provide you with a BSN number (social security number)
  • Opening a Dutch bank account (optional)
  • Information on the UvA and Amsterdam and, of course, any further questions you may have.
