Extended permit for studies

A residence permit for studies is usually granted for one year at a time. If your studies continue but your residence permit is going to expire, you should apply for an extended permit.

When you apply for an extended permit on the basis of studies, it is important that you have made progress in your studies.

Apply using the same form you used to apply for a first permit.
