Financial support

In some cases you may be entitled to financial support paid out by the government. Will financial support completely fund my time in the Netherlands? In most cases, the answer is no. Only students who are eligible for full Dutch studyfinance will be able to get the maximum support from the government. However, there are a number of other benefits that you can get as a student such as a tuition fees loan or rental subsidy.

This page outlines the various types of financial support that exist. Please remember, however, that in most cases this support is limited and will not be able to completely fund your time in Maastricht. As a result it is important to make sure that you have enough savings or a job which can provide you with the necessary income.
