5. Visa Information
5.1 Since our university offers online education, we currently do not provide students with a student visa to live and study in the Netherlands.
5.2 Students, from outside of the EU, who are required to travel to the Netherlands for a short period of time for the completion of certain course requirements, such as the Master in Data Science students, will be able to request documentation from the university to support their visa application. The university does not cover the cost of visa applications.
5.3 Students who undertake an internship or traineeship or acquire employment with one of ELU’s employment partners which does not provide visa sponsorship, will be able to benefit from ELU’s IND status by applying for a seconded visa for the purpose and duration of the internship/employment.
6. Academic Criteria and Graduation

6.2 Each programme consists of sequential modules and courses. Students must receive a passing score in each course in order to progress to the following course in their programme.
6.3 If it appears that a student fails to meet the requirements to successfully complete a course, he/she receives an official Academic Advice which details the steps the student must take to pass the course. Should the student still be unable to pass the course, he/she will be given a second Academic Advice, including, where applicable, the option to freeze their enrolment.
6.4 Successful completion of the programme includes meeting expectations set out in the Community Guidelines signed prior to enrolment, such as active participation and presence as well as payment of the tuition fees of the programme. Should these conditions not be met, the university has the right to hold on to the degree issued at graduation until the student completes his/her obligations.
