The MassArt International Exchange Programs are full immersion programs at one of our reciprocal exchange partner host institutions. Students enroll directly in the host institution abroad but pay MassArt tuition and fees. Most forms of financial aid apply, but it is important to check with the financial aid office for more information. Be sure to visit our website for more information on the steps to study abroad.

Sample Course Catalog. This may not be the same for the semester you are applying for.

Where students live:
All housing is off campus and the responsibility of the student. Please see Practical information on housing in the Netherlands for more information.

Costs to Consider:
In addition to paying MassArt tuition and fees, you should consider the additional costs of studying abroad. You are responsible for purchasing plane tickets, housing, health and travel insurance, food, additional local travel and personal expenses. It may be against visa regulations in your study abroad country for you to work. If you are allowed to work, it may be difficult to to find short-term employment. Be prepared!

In the Netherlands, students from abroad will need a visa and residence permit. There is a fee for the visa and residence permit. This fee is subject to change. More information can be found here.

Students also need to prove to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) that they can support themselves financially in the Netherlands for the coming semester or academic year. The current income requirement is €854.13 per month but that is likely to change.

Before your arrival in the Netherlands, students need to be insured according to the Dutch health insurance requirements. Costs are very dependent on the type of insurance that is needed.
