Foreign students get more time to find work

Foreign students from outside the EU are to be given one year to find work after completing their studies in the Netherlands, the social affairs ministry said on Wednesday.

At the moment, graduates have three months to find a job.
In addition, the salary level to qualify for the high-skilled migrant (kennismigrant) scheme is being reduced from €34,130 to €25,000, the ministry said.
