Nuffic Certificate for Chinese students

All students with the Chinese nationality (except Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan) who want to follow an English-taught study programme in the Netherlands for more than 3 months require a Nuffic Certificate. Without this certificate you cannot get a student visa for the Netherlands.
