Compensation for extra costs study delay

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, some students had to pay course or tuition fees for a longer period of time. Until August 2021 these students could get a compensation for the extra costs caused by study delay. This arrangement no longer exists.

  • You were enrolled as a student on a MBO, HBO or university programme for at least 1 month in both academic years of 2019-2020 and 2020-2021.
  • You were enrolled as a full-time, part-time or dual student. As an external student ('extraneus') or examination candidate ('examenkandidaat') you were not eligible for the compensation.
  • You obtained an MBO diploma (BOL or BBL) between 1 August 2020 and 31 August 2021, ór
  • You obtained an HBO Associate, Bachelor's or Master's degree, or a university Master's degree between 1 September 2020 and 31 August 2021.
  • Extra condition for MBO: you were at least 18 years old on 1 August 2020.

The amount depended on the diploma obtained.
