Question:

New address registration: How long can I wait before registering my new address in the Netherlands?

(Last edited: Thursday, 13 August 2020, 2:20 PM)
Answer:

You must inform the municipality of your change of address anywhere between 4 weeks prior to moving and 5 days after moving. The moving date that you provide will be treated as the day on which your address changed. If you inform the municipality more than 5 days after moving, the date on which you inform the municipality will be treated as the moving date. Municipalities can impose a fine of up to €325 if you do not inform them in time of important changes to your personal information.

The following link is the page on the city hall website, which guides you how to change your address online. This link is only for students living in Apeldoorn city.

It is a document legitimising your internship. It must be signed by you, your company and the university. You are not allowed to start your internship without the signed Nuffic agreement.

Question:

Online Presentation: I am invited for an online presentation but I get an error message everytime I click to join the online meeting.

(Last edited: Thursday, 19 November 2020, 10:08 AM)
Answer:

When you receive an outlook invitation you might receive the following message:

  “A custom mail flow rule created by an admin at wittenborg.eu has blocked your message.”

Any time you receive an invitation in Microsoft Outlook or 365 and accept it, the invitation will be visible from then on in your calendar. Therefore, even if you close the window that pops up while you have accepted the invitation, you can always go to your Outlook calendar and join the communication channel again.

Note:

If the problem persists you may contact Helpdesk for further assistance.

Question:

Orientation Year: I am graduating soon. How can I apply for a search year (zoekjaar) visa?

(Last edited: Tuesday, 8 June 2021, 10:59 AM)
Answer:

If you have successfully completed your studies and like to stay in the Netherlands to find a job or start up your own company, you have to apply for the search year (Zoekjaar) visa. Once you have passed your Graduation Assignment (GA) Oral Defence, Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences (WUAS) will start your de-registration process and inform the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) as we are legally bound to do so within 4 weeks from the Oral Defence day.  The procedure to withdraw the permit will be commenced by IND accordingly.  

During this 4-week period, WUAS will prepare and sign your 'Declaration of Study Completion'. You will require this document to apply for your Zoekjaar on the IND site (Alternatively, you can use the copy of your Graduation Diploma if you have received it.)  If you would like this Declaration, please fill out Declaration of Study Completion Form and we will send you this document by e-mail within two weeks after your presentation.  

IND grants the graduates three months to apply for Zoekjaar after graduation date ( i.e. Oral Defence date for WUAS students). If the Zoekjaar Application is not received by the IND within three months, then you will face a residence gap.  

Two exceptions should be considered in this regard to avoid the residence gap: 

  1. Please make sure your study residence permit valid is within those 3 months. If not, please apply for a Zoekjaar before your current residence permit expires.  

  1. If you want to work more than 16 hours soon after you graduate then you must change your visa type to Zoekjaar as soon as possible. 

More information and the application procedures can be found at:  

FAQ about the topic on IND’s website can be found at https://ind.nl/en/Documents/FAQ_orientation_year_highly_educated_persons.pdf  


Question:

OV-Chipcard (OV-Chipkaart): What is an OV-chipcard and how can I use it in the Netherlands?

(Last edited: Monday, 22 June 2020, 4:00 PM)
Answer:

In the Netherlands, the easiest way to take the bus, train, subway, or tramway is to use an OV-Chipcard (PT Smart Card). The costs for the OV-Chipkaart itself is €7,50 and can be bought at https://www.ov-chipkaart.nl/purchase-an-ov-chipkaart.htm or at the local NS-service points. There are two different OV cards.
