Voucher for further education
Have you received student finance for the 1st time under the loan system for higher vocational education (HBO) or university? Then you can receive a study voucher for further education when you graduate. This voucher is worth around € 2,000.
Why a voucher?
The study voucher forms part of the new student finance system. The income from the new system is invested in the quality of higher education. The 1st group of students under the new system cannot yet fully benefit from this investment. The study voucher is intended to meet the needs of this group.
You are entitled to the voucher if you meet the following conditions:
- You first received student finance for HBO or university education in the period September 2015 to August 2019.
- You have obtained an HBO diploma or full university diploma (Bachelor + Master).
- You graduated within 10 years, calculated from your first month of student finance for HBO or university education.
You can use the credit amount 5 to 10 years after you graduate.
Applying for the voucher
Do you meet the conditions? Within a few months of graduating, you will receive a letter from us about applying for the study voucher.
