Tuition fees 2021-2022

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 national government and the Ministry of Education (OCW) intend to provide financial support for students, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. They will make money available to reduce the tuition fees for the academic year 2021-2022. The University Council (CMR-HdK) has approved the tuition fee rates. The proposal from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has yet to be approved in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Please note that the institutional tuition fee may change as from September 2021 onwards due to Dutch law.

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 is determined each year by the Ministry of Education. For 2021-2022 the statutory tuition fee is set at €2.168. With the discount following the National Education Agreement (Nationaal Programma Onderwijs), the fee will be €1.084.

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 Supervisory Board since the academic year 2017-2018).

Reduced fee for new enrolling bachelor students

As of 2020-2021, the statutory fee for first-year Bachelor’s students enrolling for the first time in higher education in the Netherlands will be halved to €1.084 for a period of one year. With the discount as stated above (National Education Aggreement) the fee will be €542.

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

You set up a direct debit authorization: If you have a bank account with an IBAN number in an EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Monaco or San Marino, you can set up a direct debit payment to allow us to deduct the fees from your account on the agreed dates.
This can be done via Studielink. You can choose to pay your tuition fees all at once, or in eight instalments.

Setting up a direct debit via Studielink is only possible if you have a bank account in the countries mentioned above.
If your bank is in another country, you’ll need to pay the entire balance in one go. Transfer the entire amount by yourself by direct bank transfer. Always mention your family name, student number and date of birth.
