Tuition fees 2018-2019

New law halves first-year tuition fees

On 10 July the Upper House of Dutch parliament approved a bill to cut university tuition fees by half. All first-year students enrolling in higher education for the first time in or after 1 September 2018 will now pay a reduced rate during their first year, if they are eligible for the statutory fee.
You can find more information on the website of the Dutch government.

Second degree programme in education or health care

If you have already obtained a Dutch Bachelor's or Master's degree and you enrol in a second degree programme in education or health care, you pay the statutory fee instead of the institutional fee.

The tuition fee rate is valid for a full academic year. The rate for enrolment as of 1 February can be determined by calculating 7/12ths of the given rate.

  • Brexit and tuition fees

    British students who start their studies in the academic year 2018-2019 will pay the statutory fee (€2,060). The negotiations between the UK and the EU will determine if this will change in the future.

  • Institutional fee for students who do not qualify for the statutory fees

    You are required to pay the institutional tuition fee if:

    • you are not a national of an EU or EEA Member State, Switzerland or Suriname;
    • after obtaining your Dutch Bachelor's degree you enrol in a second Bachelor's programme;
    • after obtaining your Dutch Bachelor's or Master's degree you enrol in a second degree programme, unless your second programme is in education or health care;
  • 2018-2019 institutional fee: per faculty
