Working Students

If you are combining daytime studies at KdG with a job because you have to pay for all or part of your own living expenses and study costs, a 'social circumstances (employed)' ILC may help you cope with the challenges.

Your employment must meet the following conditions:

  • The income earned is needed to pay for all or part of your living expenses and study costs.
  • Only hours actually worked in official employment can be taken into account.
  • The hours worked are during the academic year.
  • The number of working hours is related to the number of credits taken (calculated as an average over three months). If you take 60 credits, for example, you have to work at least 12 hours a week.

How do you prove this?

You prove this by providing one of the following documents:

  • employment contract, or
  • VAT return for the previous quarter (self-employed), or
  • outline of lecture timetable and classes to which these lectures are given

How do you apply for an Individual Learning Certificate (ILC)?

The onus always lies with you, the student, to apply for an ILC.

To ensure that everything goes smoothly right from the start at KdG, it is important to submit your application in good time. You find the deadlines for submitting your ILC in the academic calender of your course.
