Lifelong learning credit

DUO offers a loan for tuition fees for local and foreign professionals living and working in the Netherlands (Lifelong learning credit). For more information, please check the DUO website. Please note that the Lifelong learning credit applies to our Master's programme only.

Ask your employer for financial support

Most of our students are financially supported by their employer. An employer can pay the tuition fee and deduct this investment in your education from your gross salary. In this way your fiscal salary decreases and you will pay less income tax. For your employer this is cost neutral while your benefit may go up to almost 50% of the tuition fee.

Convince your employer to finance your study

Following a part-time MSc programme does not only have benefits for you as a student, but also for your employer.
