Code of Conduct International Student in Dutch Higher Education
In May 2006 the Code of Conduct International Student in Dutch Higher Education came into effect. Since September 1, 2017 a new version is valid in replacement of earlier versions.
The Code of Conduct is a joint initiative of the Dutch government and higher educational institutions and contains agreements which the institutions of higher education have developed to regulate the relationship with international students. The regulations are – for example – about the provision of information to international students and the minimum (language) requirements for admission to an institution of higher education.
According to Dutch immigration law, inclusion of an institution in the Register of the Code of Conduct is a precondition for attracting international students from outside the EU.
