Moving abroad is an exciting challenge. We want to help you to feel at home in the Netherlands and Utrecht as soon as possible. Therefore we offer you the following support.
Our International Office can arrange a student room for you. You will get instructions for this as soon as you apply. Your room will be furniture and has a Wi-Fi Connection. If you prefer to arrange your own housing, you can of course do that.
Before coming to the Netherlands, we can put you in touch with a study buddy. This is a former student of the programme. You can chat with them and ask any questions you have before coming to The Netherlands. We try to link you to a buddy who has the same nationality as you.
This buddy will also pick you up at Schiphol Airport. They will help you find your way to Utrecht, pick up your room key, show you where your new home is and explain how to get there by public transport. Your buddy can also help you with practical matters after you have arrived. He or she can advise you about opening a Dutch bank account, public transport cards, bikes etc.
