Tax Return on Study Expenses
The Dutch government encourages lifelong learning and studying by making the costs deductible in the income tax return. This means that the expenses incurred for study geared towards a future profession are deductible up to a maximum of €15,000. There are conditions around these deductive costs. As of the 2022 tax year, tax deductions for your study costs will no longer be possible.
For more information about tax refund please contact our programme management or your tax advisor, or see the website of the Dutch tax authority.
To receive a full refund, a written notice of cancellation must be sent to email@example.com within a term of thirty (30) calendar days after receipt of the written confirmation of the registration, unless the start date of the course programme is within the term.
Accordingly, the cancellation fee is calculated as follows:
- 25% of the programme fee if the cancellation notice is received 30 days or more before the start date;
- 75% of the programme fee if the cancellation notice is received between 29 and 15 days before the start date;
- 100% of the programme fee if the cancellation notice is received 14 days or less before the start date;
- 100% of the programme fee if the cancellation notice is received after the programme has started.
