Although getting funds for university education is not ‘an easy nut to crack,’ the situation is not hopeless. The good news is that you can get financial support as a non-EU/EEA citizen studying in the Netherlands.
Once you are admitted into your course of study, you can take advantage of several scholarships for non-EU/EEA students available for your institution. However, be aware that scholarship awards are merit-based, and you should be ready to meet the requirements to qualify. Another opportunity to explore to fund your study are jobs opportunities for non-EU/EEA students.
You can get more information on both study financing opportunities from the appropriate offices of your institution. Better still, you can conduct personal research or ask the appropriate student affairs office for more information.
