As a full-time or work-study track student at Avans, you may fall behind with your studies due to special circumstances. You might fall seriously ill, for example, or pursue administrative activities.
In cases such as these, you can, under certain conditions, appeal to Student Financial Support. These conditions are detailed in the Fund for Financial Support of Students Profileringsfonds Scheme, which you can download from the bottom of this page. This document also contains an application form.
Please remember that if you want to apply, you must first schedule an appointment with the student counsellor.
Financial support via DUO
You might also qualify for financial support from the Dutch Education Executive Agency DUO if long-term illness or a disability prevent you from graduating within the regular 4-year period. To this type of support, conditions also apply. A student counsellor can give you more information about this.
Hardship Fund Scheme
The Avans University of Applied Sciences Hardship Fund can provide Avans students with temporary financial support in the form of an interest-free loan in special circumstances. This scheme is part of the Students’ Charter.
