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.

For non-EU/EEA studentsDo 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.
