Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences


In the Netherlands you cannot pay with credit cards everywhere. Therefore it is very convenient to open a Dutch bank account. We have made special arrangements with Rabobank. 


Are you a citizen from a Euro country? Since the introduction of the Single Euro Payments Area (SEPA), it is possible for Dutch companies to collect money from a foreign bank account. In this case, it might not be necessary to open a Dutch bank account.


You can open a bank account with a bank branch of your choice. However, at most banks you will need your Dutch Citizen Service number (CSN). It will take a few weeks after your arrival before you will receive your CSN from the municipality of Amsterdam. Rabobank is a Dutch cooperative bank, a global financial institution with many customers across the world in more than 44 countries. 

Opening a Rabobank account on Saturday 8 February or Saturday 15 February

Rabobank consultants can help you with opening an account and Internet Banking access on Saturday 8 or Saturday 15 February. Location: Roeterseiland Campus, building E. More information will be sent by email to the Spring semester students soon.
