It should be noted that many students do have part time jobs and are permitted to work in the Netherlands for ten hours a week.
Financial assistance is available and is awarded on the basis of:
- the availability of funds.
- the needs of the student as determined from the Financial Disclosure Statement submitted by the student.
- students who are also salaried workers through a Christian ministry may be eligible for a 50% discount on their tuition. (Clergy Discount)
