Delayed due to corona? Get a three-month tuition refund
Students receiving Dutch student finance who obtain their masters degree between September 2020 and January 2021, will be refunded three months of tuition to compensate for any study delay due to the coronavirus.
For university students this amounts to 535 euro. If you’re registered at DUO and currently receive student finance according to the regulations for international students, the compensation will be automatically transferred before 31 March 2021. DUO will contact you if they’re missing any personal details.
Students in the last year of their programme who receive a supplementary grant in July, August or September 2020 also have a right to compensation as high as 1500 euros.
Because of the corona measures, internships have been postponed or cancelled, some courses can’t be taught online and research and thesis projects have been halted. The Dutch government aims to ease some of the financial consequences this has for students.
