Maximum duration student loans

I was initially planning to graduate in May 2021 (which is less then 2 years for my masters degree), since I will be able to have student loans until ~March. However due to the coronavirus it looks like I will only graduate ~July. For 2 months without student loan I can still work more now and save some money, however 4 months will be too much. All the different kinds of help described on the UU site and the DUO site does not help in my situation, since technically I don’t have study delay.

Is there a way I can extend my student loans so I don’t have to work full time next to my studies near graduation?

ps. I’m a Dutch student.
