About Dronten

You must make an appointment with your municipality as soon as possible after arriving in the Netherlands. This is compulsory for anyone who wishes to study here, even if you are from the EU. The registration process in Dronten is well-arranged. Your educational institution will send you an email explaining the steps you have to go through. To make it easy for you, we’ll explain it once more over here.


When you have arrived in the Netherlands you will receive a date and time at which you are expected to be on campus to fill in you basic information, necesarry to be registered. Aeres will then arrange a moment for you to go to city hall and finish your registration. At the time of your appointment your documents will be reviewed and your identity will be checked. Approximately a week later you will receive your BSN in the mail and you will be ready to continue arranging all services you want.

Why do we work together?

Quite some international students come to Dronten to study at the Aeres University of Applied Sciences. The municipality of Dronten and International Student Services are trying to help the integration process of these international students. Clear information is critical to reach this. As we explained in Formalities, signing up in your municipality and getting a Citizen Services Number (BSN in Dutch) is of great importance. BSN is used on all legal documents here in the Netherlands. Having a BSN allows you to do other important things, like opening a Dutch bank account. Above we explain how you can get your BSN in Dronten; please follow the instructions carefully.
