WHAT IS THE ENROLMENT DEADLINE? 
We do not have enrolment deadlines. Please remember you might need to apply for a visa and/or permit. Although Dutch Immigration will generally process your application within two weeks, it’s recommended that you start the process early.

WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR A FULL YEAR IF I WITHDRAW FROM THE PROGRAMME DURING THE COURSE OF THE YEAR?
If you withdraw from the programme once it has started, you will indeed be obliged to pay the tuition fee for the whole academic year. At THIM we work with small groups and are unable to admit new students once the academic year has started. This means we will already have incurred the costs of your training. If you decide to terminate your enrolment, we are unable to reduce these costs. To avoid students from dropping out as much as possible, we do our best to inform you to the fullest extent in advance, so that you know exactly what the degree programme entails.

DO I HAVE TO PAY MORE IF MY PROGRESS IS DELAYED? 
No, you pay tuition fees for a maximum of four years.

DOES THIM HAVE A STUDENT ASSOCIATION?
THIM does not have a student association of its own. However, we do organise various fun extracurricular activities every year.
