Post Study Work visa

Post-study work visa to gain work experience and/or find a job/start a business in the Netherlands.

Students who have graduated from Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences with a bachelor's or master's degree are allowed to search for a job in the Netherlands for a maximum period of one year (the so-called orientation year or search year). However, you have to apply for the orientation year. It is not automatic.
