STAP and The Hague University of Applied Sciences

STAP is a government regulation. Stap stands for Stimulating Labour Market Position (Stimulering Arbeidsmarkt Positie). The STAP budget is a reimbursement from the government of up to €1,000 that adults can use to take a degree programme, a course or some training. You can apply for the STAP budget and receive it once per calendar year through the UWV (Employee Insurance Agency). This new STAP regulation replaces the tax deduction for training or education costs.

Who is eligible?

The regulation is intended for students who have not yet started a degree programme when they apply for STAP. If you want to know more about the STAP budget, visit the UWV website or the website of the Dutch government.

STAP and The Hague University of Applied Sciences

It is not currently possible to use the STAP scheme for degree programmes offered by The Hague University of Applied Sciences. THUAS is working hard to enable the use of STAP to pay for our part-time degree programmes and some of our courses. The goal is to have this ready by the end of 2022. As soon as there is any news, we will publish it on our website.
