As an international student you may currently receive financial aid for studying from the Dutch government. If you do and you remain enrolled at Avans when you travel abroad as part of your studies you can, in many cases, continue to receive this aid. As part of this you are entitled to public transport compensation for every month you are abroad. This also applies if you are only eligible for a loan.
