More than a year after Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences called on Dutch education authorities to look into allegations that recruitment agencies are fast-tracking international students into research universities despite not having a qualification that is equivalent to the national requirement, Wittenborg's claim has now been justified.
A survey among international students and alumni at Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences has indicated that they deem the current orientation year for graduates to look for a job in the Netherlands insufficient. More than 70% favour a 2-year post-graduation work visa instead.
If you are a non-EU citizen and wish to study at a Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, you will need a provisional residence permit (MVV) and a residence permit (VVR) to study in the Netherlands. What are the conditions for this residence permit? And how does the application procedure work?
These procedures and conditions also apply to exchange students.
