All visa procedures remain in the student's responsibility and must be arranged prior to arriving in Enschede! This websites sums up the necessary actions for acquiring a (short term/ Schengen) visa.
Invitation letter for student's needing a visa
Within 24 hours after your registration (once fee has been paid) we will send you a digital invitation letter (by e-mail) from the University of Twente stating your admission into the CuriousU summer school programme. Furthermore we provide you with an official invoice.
Do I need a visa?
Most students will not need a visa for visting the Netherlands since the summer school course runs for less than three months. However, it is the candidate’s responsibility to look into this matter independently. For more information abou your specific visa application procedure, please contact the Dutch embassy closest to your city of residence.
What about travel and insurance costs?
Personal expenses like travel costs (plane ticket, train ticket, etc.), travel insurance and other expenses, as well as accommodation other than a tent are not included in the basic fee. For more details check our terms and conditions.
Obtaining an appropriate visa is the student’s personal responsibility. Failure to obtain a visa does not exempt the student from his/her payment obligations but we offer several refund deadlines.
