Application for Studiefinanciering

Application for Student Finance

Your application for student financing can be a long and tedious process. But there is a more simple way. We recommend reading the content below and booking a session with one of our advisors, in order to complete the application process as fast and efficient as you can.

1)Read our College Guide and contact us

Check out our College Guide section on Study Financing in order to get a general overview of the financing options. You can then go ahead and select the ones you would like to apply for. We also recommend you contact us or book an online appointment with one of our advisors. We will take you step-by-step through the entire process

2) Fill in the application

The next steps is filling out the actual application. Although the application for the tuition fees loan is in English, the others are in Dutch. Since they are quite simple to translate, we recommend using Google Translate. Below you will find the downloadable applications for 2015/2016:

3) Hand in required documents in person

After you have filled in the application correctly, make sure to hand it in correctly with all of the required documents including:

-a Valid ID

-a Copy of your Confirmation of Registration at City Hall

-your Application

Extra documents for supplementary grant:

-Parent’s income statements from 2013, 2014 and 2015

-Copy of your employment contract with a signature and stamp.

-(preferred) Last month’s payslip from your employer (at your student job)


In order to do this, you have to book an appointment with and visit a DUO Service Desk nearest to you. Remember, if you do not hand in all of the required documents, the entire application process will be delayed and you will receive a reminder letter to your Dutch mailing address.

Although this is a general overview of how to apply for study financing, we highly recommend booking an online appointment with us, since every application is unique.

During this appointment we will help you complete the application process step-by-step. Using our personalized approach, we will tailor the meeting to your needs and requirements.

Here’s what one student said about us:

“I was having some difficulties with DUO when I first arrived in Rotterdam, I didn’t know who to talk to, how to fill out my application, and I wasn’t exactly sure what the requirements were in order to receive studiefinanciering. Then I heard about Kristian’s Study Financing company. If it wasn’t for him, I probably wouldn’t have been able to get my DUO as fast as I did and I was able to do it with minimal hassle. Anyone who’s looking for help with their application should definitely book an appointment with Study Financing Netherlands. They can handle every client with the utmost care and diligence.” Deni, student at Erasmus University of Rotterdam 5/5 |⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆
