Extending your residence permit
I want to extend my residence permit because:
My current residence permit for study at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam will expire before 01/12/2017 or before 31/08/2018
I do not expect to complete my study programme on time
I will finish a study programme (BA, MA or Exchange) at VU Amsterdam before 31/08/2017 and am accepted for a new degree programme at VU Amsterdam for the academic year 2017/2018
I currently hold a student residence permit, obtained via another Dutch institution which is due to expire before the end of the study year, and I have decided to join a degree programme at VU Amsterdam
