When you defer or cancel your enrolment as a UvA student, we are obligated by Dutch law to inform the IND about your deregistration as our student. After that, the IND will revoke your residence permit using the date of deregistration from the UvA.
If you plan to defer your enrolment and temporarily halt your enrolment, you also have to deregister as a UvA student. This means that we have to notify the IND about your deregistration, and the IND will revoke your residence permit per the date of deregistration. Please contact us within 3 months before the start of your study programme so we can invite you again for the immigration process.
