Though the Netherlands, or more popularly still known as Holland, may not be the first place that you think of when you consider the
study abroad option, the country has a lot to offer in academics, vocational and language courses and much more.
The country is known for its cheese, tulips, and windmills across the world but only those who have visited or stayed in Amsterdam
know that the number of bikes in the country is larger than the number of people. It has coasts that are filled with sand dunes, historical cities like the Utrecht and Maastricht and Amsterdam that has miles of canals and old houses that reek of history, art and culture. The country also boasts more than 600 museums that are replete with paintings of Van Gogh and Rembrandt. Most people speak English and are warm and friendly. They maintain beautiful homes and decorate them with blossoms. Socializing generally takes place on the pavements outside the houses or while riding bikes to destinations.
But friendly people and richness of culture are not the only reasons why you should choose to study abroad in
Amsterdam. The education system
is divided into two sections – Primary education course that lasts for 6 years followed by a secondary education program that lasts for an equal number of years. Study
Netherlands programs also need to follow the same curriculum. The range of courses offered in these
high school study abroad institutes include language, literature, history, mathematics and science.
If you are convinced about the robustness of the educational system in Holland and lured by the country’s culture, simplicity and its people, then the next step that you need to take is to apply for a student visa if you have decided to
study in Netherlands. There are three kinds of visas that you can apply for.
1. Short stay visa – for those looking at a high school summer study abroad option.
2. Temporary stay visa – an option where an MVV sticker is placed on your passport.
3. Residence permit – ideal for those looking at an academic or a long-term study abroad option. This is acquired after you enter the country and should be obtained within 3 days of arrival.
Citizens of United States of America, Canada, Australia, Austria, New Zealand, Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, Monaco, Japan, Iceland, Finland or those belonging to the countries of the EU do not need a visa before entering the country. They do, however, need a residence permit within 3 days of arrival just like the others for a long-term stay.
