Tuition fees 2020-2021

The amount of the tuition fees depends on conditions including your nationality, your degree in Dutch Higher Education, whether you study full-time or part-time and the year of your enrolment:

The statutory tuition fee applies only to students who do not have a Dutch bachelor or master degree and who have an EEA nationality (EEA is incl. NL), or the Swiss or Surinam nationality, and for non-EEA students with a legally registered EEA-partnership or asylum status.

Full-time studies

The statutory tuition fee for full-time studies has been fixed by the Ministry of Education at €2.143,-.

Part-time studies

The rate of the statutory tuition fee for part-time studies has been aligned to the rate of the statutory tuition fee for the full-time studies (by the Board of Governors since the academic year 2017-2018).

Reduced fee

New enrolling bachelor students who enter the Dutch Higher Education system for the first time, pay a one-time reduced tariff of €1.071,- for the first year only.

The fees for students from outside the EEA and for students from The Netherlands or another EEA country who already have a Dutch bachelor or master degree, are set by the Board of Governors.

The institutional tuition fee for the academic year 2020-2021 is set to €7.500,-.
