Housing services

Campus accommodation is not common in the Netherlands. Most students rent a room in a student house. If you need help finding a place to live, Tio will assist you. Students requiring a student visa will automatically be offered housing via Tio.

Since both Amsterdam and Utrecht are very popular among students, we recommend letting Tio help you. Average accommodation prices for student housing in Amsterdam vary between € 600 and € 800 a month and in Utrecht between € 450 and € 650 a month.

Library services

Other examples of implemented improvement measures are the quality analysis with regard to examinations, decreasing the maximum number of participants in a group, starting with international exchanges, setting up a library at every location, implementing the Blackboard, implementing a major-minor structure and adjusting the assessment system for lecturers, final thesis coaches and study coaches.

Medical services

Tio expects all its students to have third party liability insurance as well as health insurance. EU/EEA students can study at Tio based on insurance taken out in their home country. For students requiring a visa, Tio will provide you with sufficient insurance.

I can only be positive about my time at Tio, during which I got so many opportunities to develop myself and to work on expanding my professional network. Learning by doing turned out to be truly of great value, and I feel ready to step into the tourism industry.
