Tuition fees differ depending on your situation. Find out if you are eligible for the statutory tuition fees or whether you are obliged to pay the institutional tuition fees, which generally apply to international students (outside of EU / EEA member states, Surinam or Switzerland).
In the Netherlands there are two types of tuition fees: statutory tuition fees and institutional tuition fees. For general information about tuition fees, please see the tuition fees page.
If you meet the requirements applied by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, you will be required to pay the statutory tuition fee. If you do not meet these requirements, you must pay the institutional tuition fee.
