Tuition fees

Tuition fees will differ from one student to the next. There are two forms of tuition fees: the statutory tuition fee and the institutional tuition fee. Different rates are charged for these two forms.

Statutory tuition fee 2019-2020

The statutory tuition fees, are set by the Minister of Education, Culture and Science. The statutory tuition fees for 2019/20 have been set at €2,083. To be eligible for the statutory tuition fees you must meet the following requirements:

  • You are registered for a funded higher education course (All Associate and Bachelor Degrees).
  • You have not obtained a comparable diploma at another funded institution in the Netherlands.
  • You meet the nationality requirement. That means you:
    • comes from 1 of the countries in the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, or Suriname, or
    • you are the family of a non-Dutch EU citizen who lives in the Netherlands or
    • you have a residence permit that entitles you for student finance. 

Half-tuition fees

Starting from the academic year 2018-2019 on, students who start their studies in Higher Education for the first time in an Associate or Bachelor degree program will pay half of the tuition fees for the first year of the study. Student enrolled in teacher programmes will pay half of the tuition fees for year one and two of the study. This regulation only applies when you pay statutory tuition fees. The exemption does not apply to students who were enrolled at a university college or university before 2018-2019. Please carefully read the terms and conditions on the website of the Dutch government.

Institutional tuition fee 2019-2020

If you do not meet the conditions for the statutory tuition fees, you pay the institutional tuition fees. Below you will find an overview of the institutional tuition fee that you pay for all our courses. The amount of the institutional tuition fee is determined by the Executive Board. The university of applied sciences no longer receives government funding for students who have to pay the institutional tuition fee, which is why the institutional tuition fee is usually based on the statutory tuition fee and the government contribution that the university college would otherwise have received. In this way the university of applied sciences receives a similar amount as for students who pay the statutory tuition fee.

Tuition fees are not applicable to exchange students.
