The CDA wants the next government brings back the basic grant for undergraduate students. That's in the CDA election that appears tomorrow, the Volkskrant writes.


The costs are partly covered by students not ov-card to give, but only reimbursement for travel expenses between their home and study city.

Since last year, new students must DUO in Groningen a loan. The Christian Democrats find it "unacceptable" to raise barriers to the accessibility of higher education.

The evidence for the higher threshold is provided according to the party by the lower inflow figures for the academic year 2015-2016. "Precisely those for whom it is not easy to go to college, drop out," said CDA MP and education spokesman Michel Rog.

The current system was introduced in early 2015 by the coalition government of VVD and PvdA, with the support of opposition parties D66 and GroenLinks. The CDA was against.
