Students from EU member countries who have been living in the Netherlands for at least five years will in future be eligible for a study grant, a student travel card and a loan
The new ruling is in response to a recent pronouncement by the European Court of Justice. A French student had taken the English authorities to court for refusing him a grant, while he had already been living in the UK for three years. The student won the case.
It is not known whether there are students in Wageningen who fulfil the requirement. / HOP, JH
