- What are my rights and obligations as a study migrant?
• You can stay in the Netherlands for the duration of your study plus three months (maximum five years including preparatory year/transition year, excluding extension).
• You may work a maximum of 16 hours per week next to your study. Instead of these 16 hours you can do seasonal work in June, July and August. Your employer can apply for a TWV (employment permit) for you at UWV (Employee Insurance Agency).
• You don’t need a TWV for an internship that is relevant to your study program, but you must have signed an internship agreement with the internship company and UT.
• You must have sufficient study progress. Read more about this below.
• You have an obligation to provide information: you need to inform the UT and
the IND about changes in your personal data.
• You must provide important information about your stay and about your residence
permit to the IND and UT.
• You must provide correct and complete information to the IND and UT.
• You must be registered with an educational institution that is recognized as a
sponsor (if you are no longer enrolled, the UT must report this to the IND).
• You must pay tuition fees in time.
• You must have sufficient means of existence.
• You must have a valid passport.
• You must be insured against medical expenses in the Netherlands.
• You must be examined by the GGD (Municipal Health Services).
• In some cases, family or family members can also get a residence permit.
• If it is part of the study, you can go abroad (out of the Netherlands) for a maximum of 12 months without your main residence being changed. The residence permit won’t be withdrawn, when you obtain sufficient credits in that academic year to meet the standard.This answers my question.Thank you for your feedback
