A few suggestions for finding part-time employment:

  • Many students find a part-time job in a restaurant, bar or shop. This kind of job can be found via employment agencies (including those specially aimed at students), or via advertisements, newspapers and noticeboards.
  • The intermediary agency Campus4Work, located at De Uithof, also offers suitable vacancies. Campus4Work deals specifically in jobs for students at Utrecht University.
  • Important: if your income exceeds the extra earnings threshold, this will affect your claim to a student loan or grant. More information about additional earnings: DUO website.


The main types of insurance you should have completed are medical insurance, a home insurance and liability insurance. Always compare the terms and rates of different insurance companies before you purchase your insurance. A good insurance is important and certainly not a cost to cut back on.
