Visa Application

Students who require a visa and/or residence permit must pay an immigration fee of €207 to begin their immigration process. The process will begin shortly after the exchange application deadline. Please note that students are required to show proof that they have the necessary funds to finance their stay in Tilburg. This is currently €4800 for one-semester students (5 months) and €9600 for full-year students (10 months). From Fall 2023, students must transfer the full sum via a secure payment link before their visa/residence permit can be issued. Bank letters, letters from family members etc. will no longer be accepted. The funds will later be reimbursed to the student once the immigration process is complete. Students who receive a scholarship are permitted to submit scholarship paperwork as proof of funds. Extra documentation or a transfer of funds will be required for any difference between the scholarship amount and the required funds.

Language Requirements Applicable to Mainland Students

Test scores must be valid and not EXPIRED or EXPRING within 8 months after your application submission. No other tests or scores will be accepted.
