New Dutch Student Finance System
Written on Saturday, 20 January 2018 13:58

The rules for Dutch Student Finance are changing for 2015-2016.

UK and Irish students can continue to benefit from Dutch student finance, though the rules will change, slightly, from September 2015. All EU citizens, are entitled to the following financial supports in the Netherlands:

1. Tuition Fee Loan [collegegeldkrediet]

2. [Living Expenses] Loan

3. Grant [where family earns less than €46,000 pa]

The repayment period for the above loans has been extended to 35 years, from graduation. This year, the interest rate on these loans was a very low 0.12%. You should note that, to be entitled to the Living Expenses Loan and or Grant, of up to €854 per month, you need to acquire a part-time job in the Netherlands. This condition does not apply to the Tuition Fee Loan. The Tuition Fee Loan covers full fees for the programme for which you have been accepted.

The biggest change, for 2015, is that the Living Expenses Loan was previously a Grant, though some element of the grant characteristics of this support remain in the grant that is available to families who earn less than €46,000 pa.

Above: the city of Groningen, in the Netherlands

To apply for Tuition Fee Loans, you need an Acceptance Letter from a Dutch University or University of Applied Sciences and have to acquired a Dutch address and be registered with the relevant local municipality. Most universities will assist you with this registration.

Financial Support in the Netherlands is managed through DUO [Dienst Uitvoering Onderwijs], which is part of the Dutch Ministry of Education, Science & Culture., in the Netherlands.

Open Days Coming Up in Groningen, Maastricht and elsewhere in the Netherlands
Written on Saturday, 20 January 2018 13:58

University Open Days are coming up, in the coming weeks, in universities across the Netherlands>

Open Days are a critical tool in your information gathering armoury: this is true for universities that you might be considering at home, and it is even more important, if you are thinking of studying in Continental Europe. Not only do Open Days give you the opportunity to get the feel for the culture and environment of your potential new faculty, university and city, but they give you the opportunity to meet the real ‘experts’, those UK or Irish students who are already studying in that university. They are also a good opportunity for those of you with resistant parents to show them what a good university option you are considering.

After their Open Day this Friday [31 October], especially for UK and Irish Students, University of Groningen has another Open Day on 7th November. You can either stay in Groningen until the next day, and go the Open Day at Hanze University of Applied Sciences, or take the train to the Open Day [8th November] in either University of Maastricht or University of Leiden. On the same day is the Open Day for Amsterdam UAS.

The following weekend also gives you the opportunity to take in two or more university visits. It sees the Open Days at Saxion UAS, in Enschede [14th November], followed by Open Days, on the Saturday [15th November] in the Hague UAS or NHTV Breda or Fontys UAS, in Venlo, or Stenden UAS.

Later in the month, are the Open Days at U. Twente, in Enschede, [19th November], University College Utrecht [22nd November], HZ UAS, in Vlissingen [also 22nd November] and Avans UAS, in Breda [26th November]

Many of these Open Days require pre-registration. We are delighted to assist you in registering. Contact us on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and we ensure that you are registered.

You can plan your journeys between cities, on the excellent Dutch railway system, here http://www.ns.nl/reisplanner-v2/index.shtml?language=en

If you cant make a particular Open Day, or two that you find attractive are on the same day, EUNiCAS can assist you in organising an individual visit. Contact us on This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it to organise a visit.
