Living expenses and other costs

You will need approximately € 1.500,- to cover initial settling-in expenses. The cost of living and study, including food, accommodation, transport, books, and obligatory health insurance is estimated to be between € 850 and € 1.100,- per month.

Study and work
Although Dutch law allows foreign students to work part-time while studying, it stipulates that income from employment should be 'additional'. This means that you should be able to finance your studies without working. You also have to keep in mind that in general students do not pay for their studies by assisting with teaching or by doing their thesis research as part of a funded research program.

EU/EFTA students are permitted to work an unlimited number of hours
As an EU/EFTA student you are free to work as many hours as you like during your studies. Your employer does not need to have a work permit for you.

Non-EU/EFTA students are allowed to work up to a maximum number of hours and must have a work permit
Non-EU/EFTA nationals are allowed to:

  • work a maximum of 10 hours per week, or
  • 3 months full-time during June - August

Please note that your residence permit will be retracted if you work more. A work permit, to be applied for by the employer, is compulsory for non-EU/EFTA nationals.

Health insurance is more expensive if you work
Be aware that you are no longer entitled to student health insurance (premium approximately € 40,- per month) if you are working. As an alternative, you should get coverage under an employees health insurance programme (premium approximately € 95,- per month).

Finding a job
Don't base your finances on the assumption that you will find a job with the University (as a teaching assistant, for example) or with a company outside the university. Finding part-time work is not easy. Employment agencies can assist in finding part-time jobs for students in the business and industrial sectors, but most employers prefer personnel who are fluent in Dutch.
