The Executive Board is working on a separate Financial support scheme in cases of circumstances beyond one’s control. This concerns financial compensation for study delay as a result of the measures taken regarding the COVID-19 virus.
Central to this Financial support scheme is that the student cannot limit or prevent the study delay by participating in alternative study activities, or by following other study components. The study delay must be caused by circumstances beyond one's control, as a result of an emergency situation, NOT as a result of the student's own choice.
- You cannot complete a programme-component abroad because a negative travel advice has been given for this area
- If a practice, hospital or laboratory is temporarily closed because of COVID-19 and you have to cancel your internship in that practice, hospital or laboratory
- You have completed a programme-component abroad and cannot return to the Netherlands because of quarantine measures
The regular Financial support scheme in cases of circumstances beyond one’s control applies to a limited group of students. The Executive Board wants to make this new financial support scheme (specifically for the coronavirus) available to a larger group of students, also to students who (no longer) receive a performance-related student grant from DUO, for example.
More details about this separate regulation, specifically for study delay as a result of the coronavirus, will follow as soon as possible.
A digital application can be submitted at the end of the 2019-2020 academic year. The university will then know how much study delay has occurred as a result of the measures under COVID-19.
Advice at this time:
The university will resume teaching remotely as soon as possible. You will receive a message from your teacher(s) about how your courses will be continued remotely. Your lecturer(s) will inform you about alternative ways in which you can attend courses and take exams to minimise the study delay.
