FINANCIAL REQUIREMENTS

What are the financial requirements?

When applying for a student visa/residence permit you will be asked to:

  • Demonstrate that you have sufficient funds for both living expenses and tuition fee for your first year of stay. The required amount is €11.500 (or €960 per month for the first year).

  • According to recent updates from IND we now need to be careful with a few countries that have been involved in questionable activities using the higher education industry. Therefore, from Bangladesh, Nigeria, India, Nepal and Pakistan we ask you to not only pay your tuition fees but also your living costs. That amount is at 12.000 euros and covers your rent and health insurance. Through our experience with the first intake, October 2022, we now understand that the amount you will need in the first year is around 16.000 euros so please make sure you have enough funds before you arrive in the Netherlands. We do not ask you to transfer the full 16.000 euro amount, only the 12.000 euro amount, this is just to inform you that 16.000 euro will probably be needed.

  • Pay the visa/residence permit application fee of €450.
