This depends on the outcome of the transition period negotiations between the EU and the UK and on whether you already are registered as a resident in the Netherlands (i.e. registered in the Personal Records Database (BRP)) on the date the transition period ends. In general, you can view our tuition fees here (bachelors, Masters). Also, please read the information of the municipality where you (are planning to) live (Utrecht) and the information of the Dutch national government.
During the transition period
The transition period started on 31 January 2020 and will end on 31 December 2020. During this period British students will be treated the same way as EU students and can study at Utrecht University under the same conditions, and with the same tuition fees, as those set for EU students by law and by the UU’s regulations.
No deal after the transition period
If you are registered as a resident in the Netherlands on the date the transition period ends, you will be allowed to continue studying under the same conditions, and with the same tuition fees, as those set for EU students by law and by the UU’s regulations. As we understand it from the Government’s letter, this includes continuing uninterrupted in a follow-on study programme (e.g. doing your Master’s right after a Bachelor’s) and also includes a switch between institutions within the Netherlands.
Please be aware, we recommend students to register with the municipality (if possible) before the transition period ends as this will have many benefits (also besides your tuition fees).
If you are not yet registered as a resident in the Netherlands at the end of the transition period and you are not yet enrolled in a degree programme of Utrecht University, you will be considered a third-country national and charged the non-EEA tuition fee. For most programmes, our non-EEA rate is not very different from tuition fees at English and Welsh universities, but it is much higher than current fees in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
