  1. 1. Hinweise wegen Basisversicherung• Students under the age of 30• Students under the age of 30 years who are in the Netherlands solely for study purposes (and are not in a part-time job orpaid internship) are exempt from the general requirement to take out Dutch public healthcare insurance. They will have tomake alternative arrangements for healthcare insurance.• Perhaps you are covered under a public healthcare insurance plan at home. If this is the case make sure this providesadequate coverage during your stay in the Netherlands.• If you are from an EU country, your insurance company can provide you with an EU Health Insurance Card.• Otherwise you will have to make other arrangements, for example by taking out a private insurance policy.• There are private packages on the market especially for international students. Private healthcare insurance companiesoffering insurance products especially designed for international students include AON and Lippmann.• When are you exempt from the requirement to conclude basic health insurance?• Students who satisfy the conditions below are not required to conclude basic health insurance.• Foreign students under the age of 30 who are only in the Netherlands for study purposes and who do not have a (part-time) job.• Foreign students over the age of 30 who are only in the Netherlands for study purposes, who do not have a (part-time) joband who will not stay in the Netherlands for more than 1 year.• If you satisfy all these conditions, you can keep your ICS Complete insurance.https://www.students-insurance.eu/pdf/factsheet_nuffic.pdf
  2. 2. Achtung beim Jobben• Änderungen in der Regelung zur niederländischen Studienfinanzierung geben wird. Ab dem01. Januar 2014 müssen Studierende aus der EU statt der bisherigen 32 Stunden pro Monat56 Stunden arbeiten, um die niederländische Studienfinanzierung zu erhalten.• http://www.studienscout-nl.de/home/news/im-detail/article/jobben-in-den-niederlanden.html• „Außerdem müsst ihr beachten, dass ihr monatlich nicht mehr 450 € verdient, sonst wird dasKindergeld gestrichen“.• „Bei 56 Stunden im Monat müsste man ca. 11,5 Stunden pro Woche arbeiten. Das sind 1 ½Tage pro Woche“• „Ich würde neuen Studenten raten, nicht vom 1. Semester an zu arbeiten, sondern sich einbisschen mehr Zeit zu lassen. Besonders zu Studienbeginn hat man sehr viel um die Ohren:Das erste Mal alleine wohnen, die neuen Freunde und das Studium halten einen gut aufTrapp. Sobald man sich dann ein bisschen eingelebt hat und die Sprache besser kann, wird esauf jeden Fall einfacher. Gerade zu Klausurphasen setzt dies aber natürlich ein gutesZeitmanagement voraus. Der Studierende sollte mit dem Arbeitgeber absprechen, ob esvielleicht möglich ist in der Examensperiode weniger und stattdessen in einer anderenWoche mehr zu arbeiten.“
  3. 3. Zusatz-KV in NL für Studenten(incl. Haftpflicht, Unfall, etc.)Mit EHIC aus Deutschland,Gültig für die Zeit des StudiumsOhne EHIC aus Deutschland,Solange man < 30 Jahre althttps://www.students-insurance.eu/BepalenBestemming.do?typeAanvraag=NL
  4. 4. Kindergeld für Studenten in NLKindergeld für deutsche Studenten in den Niederlanden• Das Wichtigste schon mal vorab: Das Kindergeld wird auch bei einem Studium in den Niederlandenweiterhin gezahlt.• Höhe des Kindergeldes für deutsche Studenten in Holland• Grundsätzlich werden für das 1. Kind monatlich je 184,-EUR (Stand 2013).Altersgrenzen fürs Kindergeld bei Studenten in Niederlanden• Nach dem deutschen Einkommenssteuergesetz wird das Kindergeld mindestens bis zum 18. Lebensjahrausgezahlt. Darüber hinaus ist Ihr Kind bis zur Vollendung des 25. Lebensjahres kindergeldberechtigt,sofern es sich in der Schul- oder Berufsausbildung oder im Studium befindet.• Hierbei ist allerdings zu beachten, dass die Übergangsphase zwischen z.B. Schulabschluss undStudienbeginn höchstens 4 Monate betragen darf, damit Ihr Kind weiterhin Anspruch auf Kindergeld hat.Eine Ausnahme besteht für Kinder, die in der Übergangsphase ein Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr, FreiwilligesÖkologisches Jahr oder einen europäischen Freiwilligendienst absolvieren. Da es sich hierbei um sozialeFreiwilligendienste handelt, bleibt Ihr Kind trotz Überschreitung der 4 Monate kindergeldberechtigt.Regelungen rund um den Wohnsitz• Ob ihr Kind in Deutschland oder im Ausland wohnt, ist bei der Berechtigung auf Kindergeld nicht derausschlaggebende Faktor.• Entscheidend ist, dass Ihr Kind in Deutschland uneingeschränkt einkommenssteuerpflichtig ist.Das heißt, dass Ihr Kind seinen Wohnsitz in Deutschland behalten muss, auch wenn sich der gewöhnlicheAufenthaltsort im Ausland befindet.http://www.studienscout-nl.de/home/studium-infos-nl-von-a-z/info-fuer-eltern/kindergeld.html
  5. 5. AufenthaltsbestimmungDank Schengen ist die Einreise in die Niederlande nicht einmal mehr eine Formalität.Dennoch kommen einige Formalitäten auf dich zu, willst du länger als drei Monateim Land bleiben. Innerhalb von fünf Tagen nach der Ankunft solltest du dich beider Ausländerbehörde (vreemdelingendienst) registrieren lassen. Dort bekommstdu deine Aufenthaltserlaubnis (verblijfsvergunning).Um diese Erlaubnis zu beantragen, musst du einige Dokumente vorlegen:• deinen gültigen Ausweis• deinen Zulassungsbescheid der Universität• zwei aktuelle Passfotos• Nachweis, dass die Finanzierung gesichert ist. Die niederländischen Behördengehen davon aus, dass die Antragsteller pro Monat zwischen 700 und 900 Eurozum Lebensunterhalt benötigen. In der Regel genügt es, wenn dir Eltern oderGroßeltern bestätigen, dass sie dich finanzieren.• Krankenversicherungsnachweis (Formular E-111 von deiner Krankenkasse) + ICS !!!• Mietvertrag des Wohnsitzes in den Niederlanden
  6. 6. Einwohnermeldeamt• Um sich das Leben vor Ort zu erleichtern, solltest du dich beimörtlichen Einwohnermeldeamt (bevolkingsregister) registrierenlassen. Dazu bist du nicht verpflichtet, in manchen Fällen ist es abernützlich. Manche Arbeitgeber wollen den Nachweis sehen, und diemeisten Unis raten dazu. Für die Registrierung benötigst du diefolgenden Unterlagen:• deinen gültigen Ausweis• Mietvertrag• Geburtsurkunde• Nachweis über die Registrierung bei der Ausländerbehörde• Informationen dazu gibt es auf der entsprechenden Site von Nufficauf Englisch und Niederländisch.Achtung:Damit entfällt u.U. das Kindergeldbei Wohnungserstsitz NL!!!
  7. 7. Collegegeldkrediet• Eine andere Möglichkeit der Finanzierung ist der Collgegeldkrediet. Mit Hilfe dieses Krediteskannst du deine gesamten Studiengebühren finanzieren. Du bekommst monatlich 1/12 derStudiengebühren ausbezahlt und kannst diese dann verwenden, um deine Raten an dieHochschule zu bezahlen.Für das Studienjahr 2013-2014 ist das ein mtl. Betrag von ca. 152 Euro.• Du kannst den Collegegeldkrediet bei der DUO-IB-Groep beantragen. Wenn du für dasStudienjahr 2013-2014 den Collegegeldkrediet erhalten möchtest, ist die Deadline für dichder 31. Januar 2014. Das Darlehen muss nach Beendigung des Studiums zurückgezahltwerden. Der Prozentsatz der Tilgung deines Darlehens ist abhängig vom Zeitpunkt derBeendigung deines Studiums.• Weitere Fördermöglichkeiten:http://www.studienscout-nl.de/home/studium-infos-nl-von-a-z/finanzielles/finanzierungsmoeglichkeiten/niederlaendische-studienfinanzierung.html• Der Collegegeldkrediet ist geliehenes Geld. Das muss man nach dem Studium ineinkommensabhängigen Raten zurückbezahlen. Zusätzlich zum geliehenen Geld zahlt manZinsen, die sich nach bestimmten niederländischen Staatsanleihen richten (in 2013: 0,6 %).• Die Rückzahlungsmodalitäten kann man hier nachlesen: www.ib-groep.nl/particulieren/studieschuld

These monthly installmentsshould enable you to repay the loan in full within fifteenyears. The minimum repayment is €45.41 per month.If you are unable to pay the monthly installment, then askDUO to reduce the installment.

  22. 22. • Conditions for tuition fees loan• You must:• be under the age of 30 when you apply for loan tuition fees for the first time• be enrolled as a full-time student for an accredited course at a funded or recognized institute of higher education or university. Take a course in the Netherlands that qualifies for anallowance or a grant.• have a citizen service number (in Dutch: burgerservicenummer) in the Netherlands• have a bank account, other than a savings account.• Amount of tuition fees loan• Students from EU/EEA countries and Switzerland who are under 30 pay the legal tuition fees for a full-time study at an institute of higher education or university funded by the Dutchgovernment. However, the full-time study must be recognised by the Dutch-Flemish accreditation organization (NVAO) on the basis of a set criteria.• Students from EU/EEA countries and Switzerland who are under the age of 30 and follow full-time studies at an institute of higher education or a university which is not funded by theDutch government must pay the so-called ‘institute’s tuition fees’. Usually these are higher than the legal tuition fees.• If you comply with the conditions for tuition fees loan, you can always borrow the sum of the legal college fees in the form of a tuition fees loan. If you want a higher tuition fees loan, thisis possible if you pay an institute’s tuition fees which are higher than the legal fees. In that case you can apply for tuition fees loan for the amount of tuition fees that you pay, up to amaximum of five times the sum of legal tuition fees. If you want a lower tuition fees loan, this is also possible. You indicate on the application form how much you want to borrow permonth.• Pay back• You always have to pay back the tuition fees loan, also if you do not finish your course or if you leave the Netherlands. Make sure you inform DUO of your new address.• Interest is calculated on the tuition fees loan. In 2013, the interest rate is 0.6 percent. As long as you are entitled to student finance, the interest rate on your loan or performance grant isaltered every year. After you finish your study (counting from the 1st of January after you are no longer entitled to student finance), the interest rate is determined for a period of fiveyears.• Two years after terminating your study, you have to start paying back. You are allowed to pay back over a period of time of 15 years, and the minimum amount is € 45.41 per month.• If you do not have sufficient income to pay your monthly term, you can apply for a reduction of your monthly term. Or you can ask DUO to temporarily stop collecting your study debt (fora maximum of five years).• Application• In order to apply for a tuition fees loan, you must complete the form Application for tuition fees loan for students from EU/EEA countries and send it to DUO together with the documentsrequested. Make your application in time.• Contribution to tuition fees• If you received a contribution to your tuition fees in the 2012-2013 academic year, you continue to be entitled to this contribution every year as long as you continue to apply for it andreceive it. As a student in higher education, you receive a sum of a maximum of € 1,147.32 for the 2011-2012 academic year. This sum is equal to twelve times a basic grant (withouttravel contribution and supplements) for a student in higher education living at home in accordance with the norm of September 2012 (€ 95.61). In principle you can apply for thiscontribution to tuition fees for a maximum of seven years.• Age• If you reach the age of 30 during your course, you may still be eligible for a contribution. In that case you must comply with a number of conditions:you must have started on a course in the Netherlands before the age of 30• you must have received a contribution to tuition fees or study funding for that course before the age of 30• you must apply for and receive a contribution every year• you must not interrupt the course in the Netherlands.• Applications• In order to apply for a contribution to tuition fees, you must complete the form Application for a contribution to tuition fees for students from EU/EEA countries and send it to DUOtogether with the documents requested.

Do you want a contribution to tuition fees as from September 1st 2013? Then apply before January 31th, 2014. If, for example, you do not apply untilFebruary 2014 then you are entitled to a contribution to tuition fees from October 1st, 2013 onwards. No contribution is paid for previous academic years.• Stopping your studies• If you stop your studies in the Netherlands, you must inform DUO by sending a letter to:Dienst Uitvoering OnderwijsAfdeling Klantenservice, EU/EER-vergoedingenPostbox 510149702 JA Groningen – the Netherlands.If you stop your studies and are removed from the register at an earlier date, your contribution will also be amended.

  41. 41. Hinweis zu Versicherungen• All residents of the Netherlands are obliged tohave health insurance. Be sure that you arecovered for medical expenses and get a third-partyliability insurance as well.• It is also sensible to insure your belongings soyou can be reimbursed if they are damaged orstolen.
  42. 42. Health insurance for internationalstudents• CVZ letter regarding Dutch health insuranceRecently, you may have received a letter (pdf) from the CVZ (College vanZorgverzekeringen), stating that you are obliged to get Dutch healthinsurance. If you’ve received this letter, please read more on this topic.•How to arrange health insurance• Every person living in the Netherlands for any period of time, needs tohave health insurance. Please refer to the Nuffic website for the most upto date information on this subject.•• PLEASE NOTE: On their website Nuffic mentions two insurance companies:IPS-Lippmann and AON. Maastricht University advises you to chooseAON, as we have had better experiences with this company in the past.•
  43. 43. Third-party insurance• For foreign students, special insurance packages have been developed by Lippmann (www.acepolis.com) and AON(www.myaon.nl/fellows). The Nuffic has given a positive advice on both packages.•The UM has taken a (company) third-party insurance covering the risk of liability for damages to persons and property, as well asconsequential damage. The insurance covers such cases as liability because of a wrongful act, contractual liability and product liability.Insured parties include students insofar as they operate within the context of the university (including trainees). This insurance providesso-called secondary coverage. The insurance does not apply to students, however, if and insofar as damage is covered by a separatethird-party insurance, even if the latter is of a more recent date.The insurance does not cover the following:• the own risk of other insurance policies• liability when traveling between home and university• liability for damages resulting from theft, embezzlement, loss or displacement of property• Occupational liability is not insured. In the case of damages because of a medical error, the supervising physician shall be held liable fordamages incurred.The UM insurance should be regarded as a supplement to the insurance policy that students are expected to arrange for themselves.• In principle, students who cause damage to persons or property within the framework of their studies, should first approach theirprivate insurance company with claims for damages or the liability insurance company of the institution where they take theirtraineeship.Only if the student or the institute offering the traineeship has no third-party insurance or coverage of the latter is insufficient, anappeal can be made to the UM insurance.• Students who suffer damages as a result of activities within the framework of their studies, may only hold the UM(management/teaching staff/other staff/student volunteers) liable if the damages can be regarded as the result of a wrongful act onthe part of the UM or other liability (contractual liability of UM, product liability of UM). Such must be established for each individualcase. If the UM is not liable, the student will have to claim from his/her own (health) insurance.• The conclusion is that all students must make sure that they have an adequate third-party insurance. The UMs insurance does notprovide primary coverage.• The Landelijke Studenten Vakbond (National Students Union) provides students insurances; see www.lsvb.nl
