Borrowing money from DUO

Almost anybody who integrates, can borrow money. You can borrow money for your literacy course, integration course or Dutch as a Second Language (NT2) course. But only if you take the course at an approved school. You can also borrow money for the integration exam or the NT2 state exam.

Can you borrow?

Citizens of EU/EER countries, Turkey or Zwitserland can also borrow money for integration. As long as their income is not too high.

Are you not obliged to integrate, but do you want to anyway? If so, please call DUO. The phone number is 050 599 96 00.
