Student Financial Support
You may be entitled to assistance from the Student Financial Support fund if due to exceptional circumstances you fall behind with your work during the three years of your Bachelor’s program or two years of your Master’s program, and are unable to complete the program within the period for which you are entitled to a student grant or loan. You must be or have been entitled to a student grant or loan for the program in question. Under the new Dutch system of student grants and loans, these comprise a loan, in some cases a supplementary grant, and a student travel card. Foreign students who are not entitled to a student grant or loan from the Dutch government are, under certain conditions, eligible for an allowance in the event of illness or exceptional family circumstances.
Refer to the Student Financial Support (Profileringsfonds) Regulations for 2019-2020 for a detailed explanation of the conditions.
