Examples halving of tuition fee

You are entitled to 12 months (in the case of following a teacher education, 24 months) consecutive halving of the tuition fee. This means that when you quit your study in the meantime there is a chance that when you resume the study or choose a new study, you have no right to continue the halving of tuition fees.In the examples below you can see when you do have the right to halving of tuition fee or when you lose your rights.   

Example 1: Consecutive bachelor education
·         You start in February with a bachelor's degree from an educational institution. You are continuing the study until September
·         In September, you transfer (uninterrupted) to another study, possibly to another educational institution and continue the study the 
          remainder of the year
·         You will then be entitled to 12 months of halving of the tuition from February to January

 Example 2: (Temporarily) quitting your bachelor study
·         You start in September with a bachelor's degree at an educational institution
·         You decide to quit the study per 1 December of the same academic year
·         You will resign your study, or choose a new study the next academic year per September
·         You are entitled to 3 months of halving tuition fee from September to November. The remaining 9 consecutive months you have
          not used your right to halving tuition fees. These months you do not take along to the new academic year

Example 3: Master teacher Education
·         You start by September 2021-2022* with a master of teacher education
·         You will continue studying to the end of the study
·         You have 24 months right of halving tuition fees

 Example 4: Transition to teacher education
·         You start by September with a bachelor's programme and finish it after 3 years
·         After your bachelor you start with a master in teacher education
·         You have 12 months right to halving tuition fees during the Bachelor's programme
·         When you start your Master teacher education you will be entitled to another 12 months of halving tuition fees. In total you will
          then be entitled to 24 months halving tuition fees

 Example 5: Teacher education in addition to another education
·         You start by September 2021-2022* with a master teacher education and at the same time you follow another education
·         You have only 12 months right to halving tuition fees, you hereby lose your right to a second year halving tuition fees

 Example 6: Temporarily quitting your master teacher education
·         You start in September 2021-2022 with a teacher education and quit your study on 1 February of the same academic year
·         In September of the next academic year you will continue your teacher education until you finish it
·         You are entitled to a total of 17 months of halving tuition fees, namely from September to January of the first academic year and
          during the period from September to August in the second academic year. The 7 months from February to August in the first year,
          when you have not followed a study and you did not use the right of halving tuition fees, you cannot take along to the next
          academic year

Starting the master earlier means you have started the bachelor before the academic year of 2018-2019, which does not entitle you to any halving of tuition fee.
