Reimbursement for dual Master's

The application for reimbursement for a dual master's degree will change per academic year 2022-2023. Read below if you are eligible for this compensation.

A dual Master's programme is comprised of two parts: 60 ECTS credits in courses and a thesis and 30 ECTS credits in a work-study component or internship. For Curating Art and Cultures students, the latter comprises 60 ECTS credits.

  • Dual Master’s students who started their dual Master’s before 2022-2023 and are receiving an internship allowance that is lower than €275, can submit a request for a supplementary allowance from the Profiling Fund for a period of 6 months, in order to bring the total to €275. In addition, students receiving a supplementary student grant from the Education Executive Agency (DUO) are eligible for an allowance equal to their supplementary grant, in addition to this allowance of €275.
  • Dual Master’s students who will be starting their dual Master’s in 2022-2023 or later can only claim compensation from the Profiling Fund if they have received a supplementary grant from the Dutch government (DUO). The compensation then consists of an allowance equal to the supplementary grant for a period of 6 months. Curating Art and Cultures students who receive a supplementary grant from DUO can apply for a 12-month allowance.

More information about the DUO supplementary grant can be found on the DUO website.
