Tuition fees

Are you paying statutory tuition fees for the first time for a Bachelor's degree or a programme in teaching in 2023-2024? In that case, the tuition fees will be halved. Check the conditions on the website of the Government of the Netherlands.

From the academic year 2024-2025 (as of 1 September 2024), the government has stopped the halving.

There are two types of tuition fees in the Netherlands: the (lower) statutory fees and the (higher) institutional fees. These fees apply to an entire academic year. Which fees apply to you depends on your situation. If you are unsure which fees apply to you, please contact Student Services.

In case you do not wish to remain enrolled during the entire academic year (for example after graduation), you have the option to terminate your enrolment. You might be entitled to partial restitution of the tuition fees. Please refer to the rules and exceptions on our page about termination of enrolment

Please also see the payment method of the tuition fees and what the consequences of not paying are. More detailed information on the tuition fees can be found in the Regulations for Enrolment and Tuition fees.
