  • Welcome to IHE Delft! Starting a new phase in your academic career can be daunting, however, you will have support from IHE's student affairs department throughout. In the following months, you'll spend a lot of time preparing for the start of your MSc programme. This online course is made to help you with that. It contains online learnings to complete at your own pace, webinars, and other useful bits of information, advice, and reminders of key deadlines. Can't make it to one of the webinars? Don't worry, all webinars will be recorded so you can catch up at a more convenient time.

    It's a good idea to make sure you've read the preparation guide beforehand so you know what to expect. After that, it's time to jump into the course. As we near the start of the MSc programme, more content will be added, so don't forget to check in regularly!

    Important: this course is not the same as the preparatory courses for the MSc programme. It only touches on non-academic matters such as immigration, accommodation and day-to-day life while living abroad. If you were asked to participate in any preparatory courses, make sure to do so as well.

  • Once you've been financially admitted, one of the first things you need to do is make sure you can actually travel to the Netherlands.

    You won't find detailed information about, for example, the residence permit application in this course. Just two key actions to keep in mind. Instead, please refer to the preparation guide and to the information received by email from your Fellowship and Admission Officer and/or from for detailed instructions regarding the process specifically for you.

  • What happens when you become sick in the Netherlands? And how does your AON insurance policy work? The Dutch healthcare system may be different from what you are used to. If you have any pre-existing health concerns and/or you take chronic medication, you should start familiarizing yourself with healthcare in the Netherlands early. But even if you don’t have any health concerns, it’s still good to learn what to expect ahead of time.
