The scheme was meant for students in their final year, who were eligible for compensation amounting to three months of institutional tuition fees. The extension means that as long as students graduate before September 1, they can keep that money. 

The UG board decided on the compensation scheme after the Dutch government introduced a similar arrangement for EU students in their final year.
