OPEN A DUTCH BANK ACCOUNT

You can open a student bank account at several different banks in the Netherlands.

Once you have arrived in the Netherlands, it is very convenient to open a Dutch bank account because international money transfers are usually very expensive and take days to process. Also, credit cards are not widely accepted. With the debit card which you receive when opening a Dutch bank account, it is easy and free of charge to pay at supermarkets, cafes and restaurants.
