While the Netherlands aims to attract as many talented international students as it can, it also keeps a few secrets about what international students are entitled to. One of the better kept secrets is the fact that all international students can potentially be eligible to receive non-repayable student finance grants, provided they meet a few criteria such as working a set number of hours per month.
Another secret is that you can also potentially claim welfare against the cost of your rent and health insurance, two schemes called huurtoeslag and zorgtoeslag respectively, depending on variable factors such as personal income and the cost of rent.
It is definitely worth your while to investigate these options, and what better place to start than with the guides in the sub-menu on the left!
These guides are never finished.
