Feel at home

And what’s more, we ensure that as a foreign student you'll feel right at home in the Netherlands. One of the ways that we do this is to organise high-quality accommodation and help you with your visa paperwork (the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Agency). We give you a warm, caring and personal welcome. When you arrive you will receive an extended introduction to Avans and to the city. You get to meet other foreign students. We also offer you every opportunity to join in with the lively student life.
