After you have been accepted you will receive an acceptance letter via mail. From May onwards, you will receive an email notification from Studielink that you can pay your tuition fee. The tuition fee will have to be paid before the start of the programme.

Non-EEA students who require a student residence permit will need to transfer the tuition fee, the living fee and the handling fee directly after being admitted in order to have their study residence permit arranged in time.

Yes, you can choose to pay the tuition fees by direct debit in 8 instalments. This is only possible from a SEPA bank account.

Check at the toeslagen.nl/kinderopvangtoeslag whether you are entitled to childcare benefit (contribution towards the costs of childcare) and apply for it. The amount of childcare benefit you receive depends on your situation. For example, how many hours of childcare you need each month, whether you have a benefit partner. If your situation changes, this will also affect the amount of the benefit you are entitled to. That's why you should always report any changes via Mijn toeslagen (My benefits) or the app Kinderopvangtoeslag (Childcare Benefit app), even if you graduate or stop with your studies. That way, you will receive the amount you are entitled to, not too much and not too little (you reduce the risk of receiving too much money and having to pay it back at the end of the year or too little that you cannot meet your payment obligations).
