Tuition fees 2017-2018

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

The statutory tuition fee for full-time study programs has been fixed by the Ministry of Education at € 2,006 (ft). For part-time courses at our University the rate is € 1,800 (pt).

The statutory tuition fee applies only to students who do not have a Dutch bachelor or master degree1 and who have an EEA nationality (EEA2 is incl. NL), or the Swiss or Surinam nationality, and for non-EEA students with a legally registered EEA-partnership or asylum status.


1 Dutch bachelor or master degree

The definition ‘Dutch bachelor or master degree’ is applicable to:
- Bachelor students from the EEA, who have obtained a Bachelor degree after August 1991 at a Dutch college or university, and who apply for a Bachelor course at our University;
- Master students from the EEA, who have obtained a Master degree after August 1991 at a Dutch college or university and who apply for a Master course at our University.

2 EEA: The European Economic Area

The European Economic Area (EEA) consists of all member states of the European Union, plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The following countries belong to the EEA: Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Sweden.
With regard to tuition fee status, students from Switzerland and Surinam are also considered as EEA students, as are non-EEA students who have the right to financial assistance in the form of a Dutch study grant.

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. For 2017-2018 the institutional tuition is € 6,500 for new students (full-time and part-time). For existing students the fee remains the same as in the 2016-2017 academic year, i.e. € 5,500 (full-time) and € 4,500 (part-time).

As of the academic year 2017-2018 a lower institutional tuition fee will apply to new students who have already been awarded a degree in the Netherlands from a non-art programme: € 3,250 (full-time and part-time).
