Financial Support

Students are able to finance their studies through various ways of financial support.

LUC The Hague offers financial support to a number of excellent students who might otherwise be unable to attend. Please note that financial support applications are assessed on a competitive basis and are based on demonstrated need. 

Financial support at LUC The Hague consists of fee-waivers for example institutional fee or housing costs. Most range between € 2000 and € 7000 per year. LUC The Hague does not offer financial support for all study expenses. 

Check out the LUC The Hague Financial Support website here. For any questions please contact the financial support office.  

The Dutch government provides options for student finance. You may be eligible to apply for either loans, supplementary grants or both. You have to have either the Dutch nationality or a nationality or residence permit that provides the same rights as Dutch nationals. You can find more information about this on www.duo.nl. Additionally students may also qualify for Rent Benefit and/or a Health Insurance Benefit. 

  • Rent Benefit 

Rent Subsidy is a tax refund provided by the Dutch Government, to people who rent a room or a house but don’t have a sufficient income. All single studio-apartments at LUC The Hague qualify for this subsidy. Students may get an average of €185 per month, but you will need to check if you qualify for this financial support (unfortunately only available in Dutch). This subsidy is available regardless of nationality. 

*IMPORTANT*: Please note this process can take some time, up to a couple of months. Students will need to cover the FULL cost of rent until the rent benefit is granted by the Dutch authorities. Rent benefit if granted, is paid retroactively from the moment the student applies for it. We highly recommend students to apply for this rent benefit as soon as they are eligible to do so. 
  • Health Insurance Benefit 
    If you are obliged to take out Dutch public health insurance, you may be eligible to receive a Health insurance benefit which can reduce your personal expenses. For more information and to see if you qualify, please visit the following website

There are also other possibilities to receive funding for your studies.
