Studying at Windesheim

If you decide to study in Holland, there are a couple of things you need to take care of before your arrival, such as a visa and health insurance.

Academic calendar

Windesheim's academic year is divided into two semesters. One starts in autumn and the other starts in spring. 


Windesheim has its own student accommodation facilities and a housing service ('SSH') to help students from abroad get settled.


Dutch law requires everybody living in the Netherlands to have health insurance. That includes students who are only here for a few months.

Visa Service

The rules on visas and residence or work permits are complex, but Windesheim's International Office provides full support to students and applicants who need help.
