Which students are able to apply? 

Since MEiA is a part-time program, it is not possible for non-EU applicants to obtain a study visa for this master program. For this reason, the Master of Education in Arts cannot accept non-EU applicants, unless they have an EU passport, or are residents in the Netherlands and have a visa which allows them to follow a part-time course.
