All dates and times are now in the system. We have made agreements with the organisations about specific moments they will see UT students. There are sufficient time slots available to help all students. This is why we advise you to schedule your appointment in good time, so you can choose the time that suits you.
Unfortunately, these are the only available times, which means that you will have to move other activities to another moment and/or cancel them (you may have to skip a lecture). When you fail to make an appointment or do not show up, it will have consequences: failing to register means losing your residence permit, for example.
For the bank: appointments can be made and/or changed up until one week before the actual appointment date. Requests for appointments or changes after this deadline will not be accepted/processed. For the municipality, health clinic and IND: appointments can be made up until the day before the actual appointment date.
Yes, as long as the deadline has not been reached (see question above) and there are other available times. You will first need to cancel your original appointment before booking a new one, however.
Through the link in your confirmation email you will be directed to the PlanZelf webpage. There is a black banner on the top of the webpage that you can click on. It starts with: “Below you can edit your appointment”.
Contact the Student Services desk.
The locations are mentioned in the information email you received about the appointment system.
You can only register with the municipality when you have a rental contract or an official sublet agreement. In fact you are obliged to do so. As soon as you move, you need to inform the municipality.
This information can be found in the information email you received about the appointment system.
An X-ray will be made of your upper body, which means that you will have to bare your upper body. The GGD will then inform the IND that the X-ray has been made. Should you be diagnosed with TB, the GGD will contact you. Students from certain countries will be asked to come in for a second test after six months.
The easiest way to open a bank account is to do this in the presence of your parents, so if they come with you when you come in August, please inform the Student Services desk. If not, include signed copies of your parents' passports when you apply for a bank account.
At the TB screening, a Mantoux test (small injection on the hand) will be done instead of a chest X-ray.
Before the start of the academic year the faculty can tell you more about the course timetables, so contact the study advisor of your programme.
