These fees are for the full Pre-Master. This means that you will pay the amount only once, even if it takes longer than a single academic year. The Pre-Master fee is not a regular tuition fee and therefore it is usually not possible to receive a refund if you terminate your enrolment.

If you are enrolled for a Pre-Master and a regular programme at the same time at a Dutch instution for higher education (and you pay the statutory fee) you will be exempt for the Pre-Master fee.
