I need advice and help with moving to Netherlands?
This is going to be a fair read, and I'm not looking for why I shouldn't be doing it, but rather how to go about it... ok, here goes. I am currently 16 and about to attend college for 2 years in a weeks time. When college ends for me, I will be 18 and at this time I wish to move to the Netherlands to live with some friends of mine, but I am faced with a lot of problems and need help in resolving them. From what I can tell, I am allowed to Emigrate at the age of 17, and as I am a resident in the united Kingdom, It is not too hard to gain entry to The Netherlands, however, I am not sure what I would apply for and what would be the best time to do this during college. I also need to know what kind of money I would need to get hold of in order to be able to move there. If I could continue with Education after college in the Netherlands such as University then I would preferably like to do so. I also need to apply for a passport again now I am 16 as my old one will have expired, but I am not sure how to do this and if I would require a parents help for this. I wish to do everything without my mother knowing, as it is partly her why I want to leave England. I am currently learning Dutch, although It would appear English is widely known anyway. Will I need to find work, a university or anything like that in the Netherlands before I move, or can I go out there on some kind of holiday terms, I dont know much about moving countries ^^. If anyone could direct me to some help or has any ideas PLEASE tell me as I am desperate to leave England quietly, and as soon as possible once College is over. As to why I want to leave is many years of grief living with my parents, such as my dad who pushed myself and my mother out of our own home, along with my brother and moved in 3 weeks later, another woman signinifcantly younger than him. It has broken my mothers heart and I hate him for it, but also because he forced us to live out in the countryside and I could never get to see any of my friends, but without going on about that too much, Please give me a hand with info!! ty xx

So, the first thing would be to finish college - then you can apply for a new passport without parental consent... More

Right - well when you're 18, you can live wherever you like, but having lived in the Netherlands myself for several years, you need to realise that unless you have some kind of useful qualification, you're going to find it very tough going indeed... More
