Dutch Government Study Finance

Most Dutch students will have access to study finance from the Dutch state. If you are a European or associated (EEA) student you may be eligible as well for this study finance, although you are expected to have substantial paid work (at least 56 hours per month) besides your studies to pay for your living expenses.

You can check your eligibility for study finance by the Dutch state via this online Nationality chart.

Study finance by the Dutch state comprises 3 components: a loan, a student travel product and a supplementary grant (depending on parental income). You always have to pay back the loan. The student travel product and supplementary grant are converted into a gift if you graduate within 10 years. Otherwise you will have to repay them as well.
