Art studies

Studying in Holland for artists from outside the European Union made easier.

If you are working in creative arts and were selected to participate in one of the art foundations or organizations that are financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, Department of Arts, you need the correct permit to stay in the Netherlands for a longer period of time. The application procedure for the necessary papers may seem rather complicated. However, the arts’ organizations mentioned on this site can help you to get the right permit more easily.
