    Dutch residence permit required

    Students with British nationality will require a Dutch residence permit from the 1st of January 2021. British students that already live in the Netherlands (and register with a Dutch municipality) before the 1st of January 2021, can apply for a temporary residence permit thanks to the Withdrawal Agreement.

    For new British students, starting their studies after the 1st of January 2021, the university can apply for a study residence permit.
