Introduction Days

    Welcome to our international students

    During the international introduction days (Welcome to ROFFA) we welcome our international students at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. The main goal of the programme is to learn more about Rotterdam, the Netherlands, immigration matters, school and each other!



    How to obtain a residence permit

    Students from outside the EU/EEA who wish to attend a Bachelor’s degree (pre) Master’s degree or an Exchange programme at Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences for more than 3 months are obliged to obtain a Residence Permit. 

    The Centre of International Affairs will apply for your Visa (MVV) and/or Residence Permit (VVR) on your behalf at the Dutch Immigration Office (IND).

    After your arrival in the Netherlands you will receive your VVR. We will inform you via email as soon as it is ready. You will collect it from IND in The Hague.
