  • After you have fully completed the course registration form, you will receive proof of registration (PDF) from us.
  • The UWV handles the application for the STAP subsidy. You apply for the budget via the UWV STAP application, where you upload the proof of registration (PDF) you received from us.
  • The UWV checks the application. If the application is approved, Language Partners receives confirmation and your registration is finalised. We will contact you and you can get started!
