We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from the Netherlands can find advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from the Netherlands to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Netherlands offices or our own international advice team.

Entry requirements

As a general guide, we look for qualifications that are equivalent to the British high school A-levels (Voorbereidend Wetenschappelijk Onderwijs - VWO). A portfolio is required for most art and design courses.

For postgraduate students, we looks for a qualification equivalent to the British bachelor's degree. This includes students with a Licencjat.

English language requirements

In order to enrol on a course at the University, you will be required to demonstrate an acceptable level of competence in both written and spoken English.

Visa information

As an EEA national you do not need to apply for a visa to come and study in the UK.

EU financial support

EU students are entitled to apply for some financial support in the UK, a tuition fee loan and an EU bursary.
