Statutory tuition fees for 2021-2022:



Each year the statutory tuition rates are established by the Dutch Governement. For the 2021-2022 academic year they mount up to

To be eligible for the statutory tuition fee, you must meet the following conditions:

  • you are an EU/EEA, Swiss or Surinamese national, or
  • you are from a non-EEA country but are recognised by the UAF as a refugee student, or
  • you are entitled to student finance according to the Student Finance Act (WSF 2000), or
  • you have a non-EU/EEA nationality but are a family member (see Directive 2004/38/EG) of a citizen with Dutch nationality and you both live in the Netherlands

2. No previous degree

This means that you have not earned a Master’s degree in government-funded Dutch Higher Education after 31 July 1991.

In case you have already earned a Master Degree in the Netherlands ( between 1991 and today), you will be required to pay the same tuition fees as the Non-EU / EEA students
