Students with an EU passport do not need a visa to study in another EU country. See the Nuffic website for information about studying in other countries. If you are selected to study at a partner university in a country for which a visa is required, you should apply for this yourself and in good time. You will receive a letter of invitation and any other necessary papers from the host university for your visa application, and if needed the International Office can issue a Study Abroad declaration. For detailed information about visa and procedures you should contact the embassy or consulate of the guest country, Nuffic, or the website of the partner university. Make sure you begin your application in plenty of time. These procedures often require a good deal of patience, as well as time (and money). Students with a non-EU-passport should contact the International Relations/Visa section via the Front Office of the Central Student Administration.

OV-student card compensation

If you have a OV-student card financed by the government (Dutch students), you can receive a compensation for the months you are abroad. Please mind that you will only receive a compensation for complete months. You will receive this form via Mobility Online in due time.

Please see the instructions on how to fill out this form on Brightspace.

Send the form to and we will sign it and send it back to you.
