Student finance (DUO)

Student financing is a monthly contribution to your study costs and living costs from the government. The body that handles student financing is called DUO.

Student finance consists of different components, such as the basic grant, the supplementary grant, the interest bearing loan, the student travel product and the tuition fees loan.

If you are enrolled as a student in university education, you can apply for student finance. You must be a Dutch national or have the same rights. This means non-Dutch students (EU/EER) can also apply for student finance.

Apart from some specific exceptions, non-EU/EEA students are not eligible for student finance.
