See Residence permit & study progress (MoMi)

Introduction and application for assessment

The Modern Migration Policy Act (MoMi) is the Dutch immigration law. It requires all non-EU/EEA students with a residence permit for study purposes at the University of Twente (UT) to achieve sufficient study progress (50%) every academic year. During the academic year, MoMi students are informed by letter about their study progress so far. If you have not obtained sufficient study progress at the end of the academic year, you cannot continue studying at the UT and the IND must be notified, with the consequence of your residence permit to be withdrawn. More information about your obligations as a student can be found here.

When personal circumstances caused this study delay, such a notification can be omitted. In that case, personal circumstances must be assessed and recognized by the Committee Personal Circumstances (CPO) - a procedure to be started by the student before August 1. Only with a recognition, a notification to the IND can be omitted on the grounds of personal circumstances. More information about circumstances and how to start this procedure, can be found here.

After the end of each academic year (so, in September), the MoMi Committee determines your annual study progress on behalf of the UT. If your study progress is sufficient, you may continue your study at the UT. In case of insufficient study progress, a notification to the IND can only be omitted with a justifiable reason (such as a CPO recognition or an approved study progress form). If there is no justifiable reason, the IND will be informed about your lack of study progress and you cannot continue your study at the UT, with the consequence of your residence permit to be withdrawn.
