The bank statement should show that you are able to pay the 16,000 euro guarantee fee.
The statement may be from an account in your name, but it is also possible that someone else (such as parents, employer, etc.) has agreed to pay for your Master’s program expenses.
If the account owner is anyone other than yourself, send an additional letter stating:
- the relationship between you and the bank account holder
- that this amount will be paid as a guarantee payment to the TU/e once the student has been accepted on a TU/e Master’s program.
The bank statement should give no doubts about the authenticity of the statement or the bank. It should at least mention:
- details of the bank, including the name of the bank, address and telephone number of the bank;
- the name of the account holder and the account number(s);
- the exact amount of money available on the account(s) must be clearly mentioned;
- there should be no doubt about the fact that the money is freely available.
A credit card account will not be accepted.
Please bear in mind that when arranging your study visa in May/June you will be asked by the Dutch Immigration Service to prove that you are able to fund your first year living expenses in the Netherlands.
Students are therefore obliged to prove that they have a minumum of 10,000 euros, in addition to the 16,000 euros guarantee fee, in order to complete the visa and residence permit application procedure. Full information on this will be sent to you in April.
