The way you log in to Studielink with your DigiD will change as of 1 October

If you use your DigiD to log in to your Studielink account, please take note of the following! As of 1 October, logging in to Studielink with your DigiD will only be possible with the DigiD app (via a smartphone or tablet) or a verification via text message (mobile/landline telephone). You can also use your identity card in combination with the DigiD app. From that moment onwards, it will no longer be possible to log in with your DigiD username and password.

It is therefore important to download the DigiD app, or to turn on text message verification in 'my DigiD'. You can find out how to do this here.

Don't have a DigiD yet?

If you have an official Dutch residential address and your own citizen service number (BSN), it is possible to apply for a DigiD. A DigiD is also required to log in to MijnDUO when applying for student grants and loans. It is already mandatory there to log in with the DigiD text message function. So you should request it immediately when you apply for your DigiD.
