You can apply even though you have not yet completed your secondary education!

For students with a non-Dutch degree

Check the application deadlines below if you hold a degree which you didn’t obtain in the Netherlands. Check the Dutch government website whether you have an EEA or visa nationality.

Visa students

The following deadlines apply to students who do not have the Dutch nationality but a nationality that requires a residence permit for the Netherlands. Even if you are in possession of a Dutch or European residence permit your current nationality is leading. For example if you have a Mexican nationality and hold a Dutch residence permit, your nationality is Mexican (not Dutch) so the visa students deadlines apply to you.
