Frequently Asked Questions

Questions related to work permits

If you are a non-EU citizen studying at the TU Delft, you need to request a working permit to be able to find a job through Stud. Working permits can be requested at the office. Be sure to bring your identification papers, your proof of enrollment and your residence permit!

It can take up to 5 weeks for us to receive your working permit from the governmental instance UWV. When we have received your working permit, we will send you a notification via e-mail.

Your working permit is valid for one academic year. This is why we need your proof of enrollment when requesting your permit. This means that your working permit will automatically expire when the academic year is at its end.

Questions related to the Dutch payroll-tax deduction ('loonheffingskorting')

In the Netherlands, you can obtain discount on your payroll-tax. In the most simple terms, this means that the first €6800 you earn a year, are tax-free.

Enabling your payroll-tax deduction means less tax will be withheld from your paychecks. You will end up with a higher net salary.

Not enabling your payroll-tax deduction means more tax is withheld from your paychecks. This doesn't mean that you have to pay the taxes: you'll receive the total amount back when filing for tax reduction with your annual income tax returns.

You can choose to enable your payroll-taxes deduction yourself during registration.

Come by our office! Here you can fill in the specific form, so we can turn off your payroll-tax deduction in our system for you.

The government will start requiring you to pay taxes as soon as you earn more than a certain threshold. This can be a certain amount in a week (> €124,62), or a certain amount in a quarter-year (>€1620). As soon as you cross this threshold, we'll start paying taxes for you.

Questions related to work letters and -hours

Your work letters are unlocked for you by our accountmanagers. This can be done by linking your account to your job in our system. If your account is not yet linked, you can not yet see your work letters in the portal. In this case it's best to send an e-mail directly to the accountmanager who published the vacancy, so that he/she can solve the inconvenience immediately.

When you fill in your hours in the portal, a notification is sent to your employer to approve your hours. When your employer approves your hours before Tuesday, you will be paid on Wednesday. Sometimes it takes an employer a bit longer to approve your hours, due to circumstances. This causes the delay in your weekly payments. For clarification regarding the approval of your hours, it's best for you to ask your employer directly.

Questions related to the Availability List

You can just reply to the email sent by the accountmanager. Make sure to be very clear: note your phone number and the dates and times when you will be available. If you do so, there will be no trouble assigning you to the job.

Underneath every e-mail sent over the Availability List is an unsubsribe link. This will remove you from the mailing list. The link reads 'Afmelden'.

Other questions

If you already visited the 21st board of Stud, you've probably already seen the curly accountmanager in the left corner. You might then also already know that he has a Spanish name. It took Javier's board members quite some time to learn the right way to pronounce it! Javier is correctly pronounced as 'Gabjér' or 'Chav'.
