The amounts are different if you still fall within the old student finance system.

January to August 2022


Regular loan € 513.83
Supplementary grant 
€ 419.04
Tuition fee loan 
€  90.33
Total € 1,023.20

As part of the corona measures, the statutory tuition fees for 2021-2022 have been halved. The tuition fee loan has been lowered accordingly. Do you pay institutional tuition fees instead of the statutory tuition fees? Then the tuition fee loan can be up to € 903.33 per month, but never more than the amount of your tuition fees.

September to December 2022


Regular loan € 513.83
Supplementary grant 
€ 419.04
Tuition fee loan 
€ 184.08
Total € 1,023.20

Do you pay institutional tuition fees instead of the statutory tuition fees? Then the tuition fee loan can be up to € 920.42 per month, but never more than the amount of your tuition fees.

Not the full supplementary grant?

If you do not qualify for the (full) supplementary grant, you can borrow the shortfall as an extra loan, on top of the 'regular' loan.

Applying for a lower amount

You can apply for less than the maximum grant. If you obtain your diploma in time, we will automatically pay you the amount you did not receive. You can also adjust the amount of your payments during your studies, even for past months up to the start of the academic year.

You can adjust the amount of your student finance in Mijn DUO.
