Choosing a school
The website ikwilinburgeren.nl has a list of schools. It’s best if you choose a school from this list. These schools have the Blik op Werk approval mark, which gives you the following advantages:
- You can borrow money from DUO to attend schools on this list. You can’t borrow money for other schools.
- If you have not finished integration in time, you will have to pay a fine. The fine may be lower if your school is on the list, or you may not be fined at all.
Also important when choosing a school
- Do other people think the school is good, too?
- Which courses does the school offer?
- How many people are in a class?
- Can everyone in the group speak Dutch at the same level?
- How many hours of lessons do you get each week?
- Are there enough computers?
- What does the course cost?
