Available months and cities

May-October. Places all over the country, we have some places in big cities but also places in small towns.

Type accommodation

The student will be hosted at the pharmacist or at a student's home. The student will not have to pay for staying at a host family. If the accommodation is in a student's home, the student will have to pay for it. The costs depend on where the student is placed.

Board, pocket money or other financial benefits/remuneration

The SEP in The Netherlands is a non paid job. When the host family invites the student for an excursion or other activity, the host and the student will have to discuss the finances.

Sometimes the pharmacy pays for a part of the accommodation when the accommodation is at a student's home. This depends per pharmacy.

Language requirements

English written and spoken, upper-intermediate.

Other requirements

There are no real requirements but most pharmacists prefer students that are at least halfway their studies, so you would be able to do more in the pharmacy and it would be more fun for yourself as well.

We do not accept graduated students.

Information on Work Permits and Visa

If you want to come to the Netherlands, you don't need a Work Permit. For visa's, it depends per country, you will have to find this out for yourself or you may contact the current SEO.

Selection Procedures

No deadlines for application. We try to have most exchanges to be bilateral. We think that is honest and a good way of cooperating.

Choosing a SEP student is done by the SEO in the first place. The SEO selects a couple of AF's of which he/she thinks to be a good match with the pharmacist. The pharmacists make the final decision on who is most suitable to do SEP in their pharmacy.
