Let's take a gap year


This website provides independent information on all the possibilities and risks of a gap year in the Netherlands and abroad. With tips on how to prepare well and use it to increase (study) career opportunities. Because the benefits of a gap year depend on how it is spent, and a valuable gap year does not have to cost a lot.


Do you have plans to go abroad? We make sure you start your adventure abroad well prepared:

Independent information about your study, internship or gap year abroad.

Practical tips on, for example, insurance, accommodation and (study) grants.

Inspiration for an unforgettable time!


You want to take a gap year. Then you will have to deal with the options and costs of a gap year. But you will also have to stop your student grant.

Complete the questions to find out what you need to arrange and what you are entitled to if you take a gap year. Your answers will not be saved.


This site made by Tom Dekker (a student counselor) has a lot of good references to tussenjaar options as well as how to make a choice of course.
