Other study costs
In addition to your tuition fees, you will need to include a number of other study costs in your budget, such as books, stationary, excursions, a laptop or other equipment. These costs vary per programme but academic books and study materials will usually cost you between €50-100 per month.
Keep in mind that living in Amsterdam also includes costs such as accommodation, food and public transport.
Scholarships and financial aid
Amsterdam Merit Scholarship (AMS)
The AMS is targeted at outstanding students with a non-European Economic Area (EEA) nationality. You don’t have to apply separately for the scholarship or write a letter of motivation. You will only be nominated if your selection test score belongs to the best 10%. The amount will be announced later.
Please note that Amsterdam Merit Scholarship is awarded once a year to 1 new Bachelor's student that starts in September. In addition to the general requirements, the College of Psychology requires unconditional acceptance in the Bachelor's programme. The admissions office will notify you May 2022 if you have been awarded the scholarship.
