What are the expenses at AMFI?

To study at the AMFI you have to pay an annual tuition fee. In addition, you have costs for professional supplies such as books, magazines, fabrics and excursions and you have to take into account costs for living expenses and insurance, for example.

Tuition fees

The tuition fees are adjusted each year. Check the current rates.

Other expenses

In addition to the tuition fees, you will have to take into account the costs for books, fabric, materials, supplies, mandatory excursions and other expenses incurred by your field of study. This is approximately €800 per year, but may vary slightly depending on which graduation specialisation you choose to pursue.


Amsterdam is one of the most popular university cities in the Netherlands, so the demand for reasonably priced accommodation is very high. To assist international students with finding suitable accommodation, the AUAS has agreements with various housing corporations in Amsterdam to provide furnished accommodation for a maximum period of one year.

Apply early

To increase your chances of securing a room, please apply as early as possible. The AUAS will assist you as best as we can, but we cannot guarantee housing availability for all international students.
