Before arrival


Several things require your attention when preparing to come to Utrecht. You can use this checklist to help you on your way:

  Start to arrange housing as soon as possible. Finding affordable accommodation in Utrecht is not easy and often underestimated. However, for international students we have an agreement with a local housing corporation. Even then, you have to be in time!
  Prepare for paying your tuition fee
✓  Arrange your entry visa/residence permit, if applicable.
✓  Arrange adequate insurance for your stay in Utrecht. Health care in the Netherlands is excellent, but the costs are high.
✓  Join a pre-departure event. During these meetings and online Q&A sessions we share information on how to prepare for your arrival.
✓  Are you conditionally accepted? Regard the deadlines mentioned in your official letter of conditional acceptance for sending in the proof to fulfil the conditions!

Other ways to prepare
