The tuition fee for independent exchange students is:


  • € 5,000 per academic year
  • € 2,500 per semester

For non EU/EEA-students

The tuition fee for non EU/EEA-students will be announced soon. 

The tuition fee covers tuition, orientation, transcript processing and several extra-curricular activities. You will need approximately another €400 per semester for study materials.

NB: Regular exchange students do not have to pay a tuition fee to the University of Amsterdam. They pay their regular fees to their home university.

Tuition fee payment

After being accepted into the UvA Economics & Business independent exchange programme, you'll receive an invoice of the University of Amsterdam. 


The tuition fee should be paid before the start of classes in the relevant semester. Please note that students cannot be accepted into the programme if their payment has not been received by the deadline indicated on the invoice.
