Permits & Visa

    Students from all countries except EU/EEA countries and Switzerland who wish to attend an exchange programme at Rotterdam UAS for more than 3 months are obliged to obtain a residence permit.

    For an up to date overview of the permit/visa requirements, we kindly refer you to the email we sent you to announce the nomination period has started (for Fall this email will be sent mid-March and for Spring mid-September).  

    Please note that students with a non-EU/non-EEA nationality are required to show €922 for each month they study at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and have two options to do so:

    • By transferring the amount to the school’s bank account.
    • By showing a scholarship award letter. 

    More information can be found on our website - Visa application process.

    Our colleagues from Student Support (permit/visa department within Rotterdam UAS) will contact the accepted exchange students with a non-EU/non-EEA nationality within 3 weeks after the application period. We kindly ask you and your students to wait for their email. Your students do not have to start with the permit/visa application procedure yet.

    Please see our separate Permits & Visa website. If you cannot find the answer to your question there, please contact our colleagues from Student Support:
