TiasNimbas has entered a covenant with the Netherlands Ministry of Justice which grants us access to the advanced procedure for visa applications. We can take care of the application for entry visas if required and can inform you of the costs involved.
A visa obtained through TiasNimbas always is restricted to a stay for the purpose of studies. This implies full-time studies and no paid or unpaid work for the duration of your studies.
All students with nationalities from countries outside the European Union will have to apply for a residence permit for study purposes. Again, we can inform you of the costs involved and will assist you with your application for the residence permit. Through a close working relationship with the responsible authorities, TiasNimbas seeks to limit the burden for its students to the utmost.
Overseas students must have valid health insurance for the duration of their stay in The Netherlands (this is a pre-requisite for obtaining a residence permit). We can assist you with obtaining health insurance information.
As of 1 January 2009, the Netherlands Ministry of Justice has implemented an Admission Scheme for Highly Educated Migrants. This scheme entails that foreign nationals who have graduated with an MSc degree from TiasNimbas Business School can obtain a residence permit with a maximum term of 1 year in The Netherlands to find a job as a highly-skilled migrant or to start an innovative company. This scheme seeks to ensure that the foreign, exceptional talents coming to The Netherlands, those who can create economical added value for the country, are more easily admitted to The Netherlands.
As soon as the graduate has found a job making him eligible for highly-skilled migrant status (i.e., within a term of at most 1 year), he can convert the one-year residence permit into a residence permit as a highly-skilled migrant.
