Application for a change to the purpose of residence to the purpose of study


As of 1 August 2009, international students (non-EU citizens) will only be eligible for a residence permit (VVR) for the purpose of following a course of study at an institution of higher education if the institution in question has entered into a covenant with the IND (source www.IND.nl > news report 25-07-2008).


The new procedures means that as of 1 August 2009, applications for residence permits must be submitted via the educational institution in question. This is applicable for the following applications:

  • application for a residence permit without a Provisional Residence Permit (MVV) for the purpose of study
  • application for a residence permit with a Provisional Residence Permit (MVV) for the purpose of study
  • application for a change to the purpose of residence to the purpose study

If you previously studied at another higher education institute in the Netherlands and you continue directly at Inholland University of Applied Sciences, you will need to change the purpose of your residence permit. For more information you can download the information sheet.
If you wish to change your residence permit please fill out the application form.

For assistance, please contact the Recruitment & Admissions Office in Haarlem.
