Research Master Scholarship

Tilburg University highly values the Research Master's programs we offer. The Research Master is seen as a first step into a research career and could end up in a PhD position at Tilburg University or any other university. Besides an academic career, some Research Master's students end up at research intensive organizations. In order to stimulate students to choose a Research Master's program, Tilburg University offers a very attractive waiver.

Students do not need to apply for this scholarship

All non-EU students admitted to a Research Master's program will receive a partial tuition fee waiver automatically. This waiver covers the two years of the Research Master. 

Scholarship value

Students who got admitted to a Research Master's program will pay the statutory fee instead of the institutional fee. In practice this means that you will pay a fee of € 2,168 per year (*) instead of the non-EEA institutional rate tuition fee of € 14,700 for the academic year 2021-2022.

(*)Are  you starting your Research Master in September 2021? You will then pay €1084 in your first year.

In response to the National Education Program, many of the tuition fees for 2021-22 have been reduced. Compared to the information published in the Regulations on Registration and Tuition Fees 2021-22, the reduced statutory tuition fee has been reduced by 50%.  For more information, please check our Tuition Fees webpage.
