Important information for EU-passport holders accepted into our program: you are most welcome to move to the Netherlands, but it is NOT conditional for your study trajectory with DAI.

The DAI is a full-time program (it asks you to dedicate between 4 and 5 days per week to your research) but it does not require your presence in Arnhem or even The Netherlands on a PERMANENT base; it is possible to travel back and forth from wherever you are residing (in the Netherlands or abroad). During the monthly DAI-Confluence your presence is however CONDITIONAL. DAI will then take care of your accommodation. 

Where do DAI students  actually reside?

Once you've been accepted to our program and are wishing to register in the Netherlands but not necessarily planning to live in Arnhem you are welcome to seek our advice about housing -possibilities in other Dutch cities. But please note that our capacities to help you in this regard are fairly limited. You will also have to check whether you need a visa (MVV) or a residence permit (VVR). For more information about coming to, and/ or studying in the Netherlands, we are happy to be able to direct you to information provided by (former) DAI students. For very specific questions you are requested to get in touch with Rik Fernhout.
