Tuition Fees

Your tuition fee depends on your nationality. And whether you’ve studied in the Netherlands before. Nationalities within the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) generally pay a lower tuition fee. The table below shows this as EU/EEA. This includes all EU countries plus Norway, Lichtenstein, Iceland and Switzerland. Students from Suriname also pay this lower fee. Check out our page about tuition fees for more information. 

Tuition fees for Embedded Systems Engineering



EU/EEA + Suriname: 1st-time student*
1st time at university or university of applied sciences in the Netherlands. Fee applies for 1 year only.

*In past years, the Dutch government lowered the tuition fees for many students in their 1st year of study. As of the 2024-2025 academic year, that will no longer apply.

Financial guarantee (non-EU/EEA)

The cost of living in the Netherlands may be very different from in your home country. That’s why you're required to pay a financial guarantee. This amount covers your tuition fee and your cost of living. Paying this ensures you have sufficient funds to live and study in the Netherlands. The financial guarantee is a requirement of the visa process.
