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,-.

Please note that the institutional tuition fee from September 2020 onwards may change due to the Dutch law.

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.
