Tuition fees

As a student in the Netherlands you will pay an annual tuition fee. There are two different fees: the statutory fee and the institutional fee. Which fee you pay depends on your nationality, your degree programme and - for the statutory fee only - whether you study full-time or part-time. During the 2021-2022 academic year, students will pay a lower tuition fee. The Dutch government is doing this to help students cope financially with the pandemic’s impact.

Statutory tuition fees 2021-2022

full-time students €1,084  
part-time students €923  
dual students €1,084  
AUC students €3,476  

PPLE students

€3,252

 

For first year students who haven't studied before the tuition fee of the first year is halved, so full-time students pay €542. This only applies if you pay the statutory fee. You can find more information on the website of the Dutch government.
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.

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 (€1,084) instead of the institutional fee.
This does not apply if you have already obtained a similar degree in health care or education or if you are not a national of an EU or EEA Member State, Switzerland or Suriname, in that case you pay the institutional fee.

  • 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.

    The institutional fee is the same for full-time students and part-time students.
