- The student travel product is part of student finance. Therefore first apply for student finance.
- Buy a personal OV-chipkaart. If you prefer not to do this online, you can also collect an application form at the service desk of a public transport company. Take a passport photo with you.
- Register your OV-chipkaart number ('koppelen').
- Upload the student travel product onto your OV-chipkaart. You can do this at a pick-up device, within 2 weeks before you are entitled to student finance.
Please note that it's not possible to apply for student finance in April. From May you will once again be able to apply for student finance via Mijn DUO. For more information, see DUO is upgrading.
