This depends on whether a Brexit-deal is made 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 Brexit date. 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.
If you are registered as a resident in the Netherlands on the Brexit date, 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.
If you are not registered as a resident in the Netherlands on the Brexit date but you are already enrolled in a degree programme at Utrecht University, you will be allowed to complete your current degree programme (for the nominal duration + 1 year) for the same tuition fees as those set for EU students by law and by the UU’s regulations. This is a special regulation of Utrecht University and therefore does not apply at other universities. Please be aware, we recommend students to register with the municipality (if possible) before the Brexit date as this will have many benefits (also besides your tuition fees).
If you are not yet registered as a resident in the Netherlands on the Brexit date 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.
Please note that you can cancel your enrolment before 1 September (2019).
The exit negotiations are expected to take 2 years or longer. During this period British students will still be 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.
