Practical preparation for your time at HU
- You need to find a place to live. On our Housing page we tell you what to do and what to look out for. Whatever you do, do it sooner rather than later!
- Insurance is an important part of setting yourself up to live in the Netherlands. Health insurance is mandatory and there are other insurances you might want to take out.
- Working in another country can really enhance your experience – and boost your international profile! As an international student in the Netherlands, you are allowed to have a part-time job during your studies, but there are some rules and regulations to think of.
- Prepare for your life in Utrecht. There is much to learn about the city and its environs, and there are introduction and buddy programmes to help you get settled in.
