Tuition fees for Pre-Master’s programmes

Each course consists of a number of ECTS credits. The tuition fees for pre-Master’s programmes is €18.06 per ECTC credit, up to a maximum of €1,084 (for 2021-2022) and €36.81 per ECTS credit up to a maximum of €2,209 (for 2022-2023). Once the tuition fees for the pre-Master’s programme have been calculated, you will be notified of this via Studielink. You can then make arrangements to pay your tuition.

Lower tuition fees in 2021-2022

Everyone who is enrolled in higher education in the 2021-2022 academic year will pay lower tuition fees than usual. The Dutch government, under the National Education Programme, has decided this in order to reduce the financial burden on students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please take into account that:

  • within the pre-Master’s programme, you may earn no more than 60 ECTS at the reduced fee rate.
  • Are you attending a programme at another institution, for which the statutory tuition fees apply? In that case, you can pay using a tuition fee payment receipt (BBC). 
  • It is not possible to arrange payment of your tuition fees until the programme has officially admitted you to the pre-Master’s programme.
