The university or school where you want to study can apply for a residence permit for you after you have been admitted. This educational institution must be approved as a sponsor. The Openbaar Register Onderwijs (Public Education Register) maintained by the Immigration & Naturalisation Service (Immigratie- en Naturalisatiedienst, or ‘IND’) shows whether an institution is approved.
Ask the university or school where you want to study whether they can apply for a residence permit for you.
