Participants in the Preparatory Year are not registered as regular students, and they do not receive financial assistance for students. 

Students who withdraw from the Preparatory Year after 1 November 2017 cannot claim a refund of the tuition fees or additional fees.

Classes are held on three days, in order to allow students sufficient time during the week to create work and to visit cultural sites and events and, where relevant, for part-time employment to help support themselves. In addition to these class days, students are expected to be present on five presentation days, as well as for excursions, projects, a Saturday information day and the open day.
