Only refugees who have obtained permanent residence status have legal rights to DUO study financing. Up until the age of 30 refugees are eligible for both study financing which is a loan (must be paid back after graduation) and for the student travel product (which allows for free travel with public transportation). There is also an option for students to apply for a supplementary grant. This grant can cover up to 40% of the maximum loan available. If a student is over the age of 30 the eligibility changes. Refugees can use the following link to check if they are eligible for student financing.
Once a refugee has confirmed his or her eligibility they will undergo the process of application. This is done with mijn DUO.
