Please send an email to graduation.feb@rug.nl and state that you do not want your graduation process to take place yet, or contact the student support desk.


Do I need a work permit for doing an internship?

If you want to do an internship as part of your study programme in Holland, you can do this on the basis of your student visa. The employer does not need to apply for a work permit for you. The employer must, however, be able to present an internship agreement to the Labour Inspectorate, upon request.

Please send an email to graduation.feb@rug.nl and state that you do not want your graduation process to take place yet, or contact the student support desk. However, if the internship is not a part of the study, it is illegal to do an internship. We advise you to graduate and apply for an orientation year/zoekjaar visum. In this case you can stay one year in the Netherlands after graduation and you can do an internship or job without a work permit.
