Most Dutch study programmes include a trainee-ship. During a trainee-ship you are placed with a company or organization for some time (usually a few months) in order to gain practical experience or to do research. Foreign students may run into various problems when trying to set up a trainee-ship in the Netherlands or find work alongside their study. A common reason for this is that employers are not properly familiar with rules regarding foreign students. It is therefore useful to be prepared for a number of issues.
