International students are welcome to apply for our courses.

Please note that as an international student from outside of the EU, you are solely responsible for your residence permit (including work permit). Given the housing and VISA challenges, it becomes incrementally harder for intercontinental applicants (e.g. from South America, Asia, or Africa) to participate in the courses. 

Many of our international students have a residence permit based on:

  • a relationship with a spouse or (registered) partner ("partner visum"); or

  • their recent graduation from a higher educational institution in the Netherlands ("zoekjaar").

Please note that, should you not have a residence permit by the time you graduate from our No-Cure No-Pay payment model Academy or Cybersecurity course, you will be responsible for the (remaining) tuition fee yourself.

We advise against trying to obtain a highly skilled migrant permit outside of the "zoekjaar". As a junior developer/cybersecurity specialist who newly graduated from our Academy, you are unlikely to meet the salary requirements imposed by the Dutch government.

Current (for the year 2022) minimum salary requirements for highly skilled migrants:

  • younger than 30 - € 3.549 gross/month

  • older than 30 - € 4.840 gross/month
