Tuition fees  

Your tuition fees depend on your nationality. And whether you’ve studied in the Netherlands before. Exchange students from partner universities pay tuition to their home institution only.

Which one applies to me?

EU/EEA or non-EU/EEA?

EU/EEA stands for European Union / European Economic Area. Do you have a passport for one of these countries or for Switzerland? Then you are considered an EU/EEA citizen. Do you have a passport for another country? Then you are considered a non-EU/EEA citizen. Want to check if your country is part of the EU or EEA? Go to the site of the Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND).

For non-EU/EEA students

Do I need financial guarantee?

As well as tuition fees, non-EU/EEA students also have to pay a financial guarantee. It's to make sure you have enough money to live and study in the Netherlands. After all, the cost of living in the Netherlands can be quite different from your home country. The financial guarantee is part of the visa process and only applies to students wishing to do a bachelor or master program in full-time.
