Statutory Fee, Institutional Fee and Waiver

Statutory Fee

Each year, the Minister of Education determines the tuition fees for full time and part time programs in higher education. All students with EU/EEA nationality are required to pay this fee, referred to as the Statutory Fee. This fee applies to all institutes of higher education throughout the Netherlands and is a one-off payment, regardless of the number of programs or courses you take or the institution you take them at. This goes as long as you don't have a degree yet. The Statutory Fee for the academic year 2018-2019 is € 2,060.

Institutional Fee

The fees for non-EU/EEA nationals are determined by the institutes (universities) themselves. This is referred to as the Institutional Fee. If you pay the Institutional Fee, you will be required to pay this fee for each program you register. Also EU/EEA students pay the Institutional Fee, as soon as they have a Dutch degree. There are different rates during a period of transition. The Institutional Fee for the academic year 2018-2019 is € 14,500.

Research Master students

Tuition fees for the academic year 2018/2019 are as follows:

  • €2,060 for EU/EEA nationalities
  • €14,500 for non-EU/EEA nationalities

Due to generous subsidies, top students from non-EEA countries who are accepted to the Research Master will receive substantial waiver reductions of up to €12.440, so that only the Statutory Fee of €2,060 has to be paid.

Note that EEA students who have already obtained a Masters' degree at a Dutch institution have to pay the Institutional Fee. However students can request CentER to waiver this amount to Statutory Fee of € 2,060 has to be paid.
