A Paid Job Alongside Your Course

Depending on your country of origin you may work in the Netherlands. However, working part-time next to a study is very demanding. A paid job also entails paying a higher health insurance contribution. Paying for your study by working alongside it is not a realistic option in the Netherlands. Therefore, the TU Kampen advises you not to combine study and work. If you do decide to work please be advised that by law you are not allowed to work more than 16 hours a week.

Because of visa regulations, spouses of TU Master students are not allowed to work either.
