About International Student Services

We would like to say hi! Find out more about who we are and what we do.

Who we are

We are a young and innovative company who saw students struggling to set up their lives in the Netherlands. Having experienced studying abroad ourselves, we know just how complicated it can be to deal with all the bureaucracy and language barriers moving to another country. Thus, International Student Services was born.

We streamline this process by helping students arrange all of their basic needs in one place, before or as soon as they arrive. Besides arranging the basics, it’s comforting to listen to the experiences of other students. We connect new international students coming to the Netherlands, to other international students who are already here, creating new connections.

Our mission

We do this by unburdening the student from the stress of arranging all of their basic needs themselves, by providing all essentials on one platform and connecting them to fellow international students via our international student community.

Our vision

After successfully helping students in the Netherlands, we aim to grow to other European countries, improving student well-being and student integration across the continent.
