Students should bring the following documents in hand luggage:
Valid passport (with a valid visa for non-EU/EEA students)
Medical records and vaccination reports (if relevant)
Wittenborg Admission Letter
Original birth certificate in English or with a certified legalised English translation
The Netherlands is a country with a pleasant, temperate maritime climate. Daytime temperatures vary from 3°C-37°F in the winter and 19°C-66°F in the summer. As a result, you will need to pack an assortment of clothes, such as:
Winter coat and winter accessories, like gloves, scarf, warm headgear
Waterproof jacket and shoes (+ umbrella)
Business attire for formal occasions, company meetings, presentations, and events
Please bring enough money in cash to cover the first weeks’ expenses, since it may take a few weeks to open a bank account. Foreign currency can be changed to Euro at Grenswisselkantoren. For information and locations, visit https://www.gwktravelex.nl/en.
Computer/laptop/tablet + charger
Mobile phone + charger
Power adapter if needed. The Netherlands uses Type C&F Euro electricity outlets with 230 V with 50 HZ frequency. Some appliances do not need a converter. If the label states 'INPUT: 100-240V, 50/60 Hz' the appliance can be used in all countries in the world and is standard for chargers of tablets/laptops and phones
