Choosing a school

The website 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?
