Upon arrival in Amsterdam

Start appointment

Moving to a different country or city may sometimes seem like a hassle.

Student Services will help you through these procedures.

This starts with the enrolment process while you are still abroad. During this process, you will be helped with such procedures as your visa / residence permit (if applicable), signing up for the introduction programmes and preparing for your arrival in Amsterdam.
