Most study programmes at the Amsterdam University of the Arts are quite demanding. However, many students succeed in combining study and work.
When you are a national of a EU/EEA country you normally do not need a work permit; you are allowed to work in the Netherlands.
When you are a national of a non-EU/EEA country, with a residence permit for the purpose of study, you are allowed to work for max. 16 hours a week. If you would like to work more hours, your employer needs to apply for a residence permit for the purpose of work for you.
