Tuition and course fees

The amount of the tuition fees depends on conditions including the nationality of the student, any degree in Dutch Higher Education, place of residence and form of enrolment.

 

 

Statutory (legally set) tuition fee

The statutory tuition fee for full-time study programmes has been fixed by the Ministry at € 1,951 (ft).

The statutory tuition fee applies only to students who do not have a Dutch Bachelor or Master degree[1] and who have an EEA nationality (EEA[2] is incl. NL), or Swiss or Surinamese nationality, and for the limited category of non-EEA students who are entitled to financial assistance in the form of a Dutch study grant.

 

 

Institutional tuition fee

The fees for students from outside the EEA and for students from the Netherlands or another EEA country who do not comply with the residency requirements, or who already have a Dutch Bachelor or Master degree, are set by the Board of Governors. 

For 2015-2016 the fee for sitting non-EEA students of the Royal Conservatoire is € 4,650; for new non-EEA students the rate is differentiated (see below).

 

Excellence Scholarships 

The Royal Conservatoire provides scholarships of € 5,000. These so-called KC-excellence scholarships are awarded to Master candidates who do the best entrance exams (both EEA, and non-EEA students are eligible). Click here for more information.

rate

To new non-EEA students a differentiated rate of institutional tuition fees applies, based on the result of the entrance exam. This result will be given by the entrance committee in a score on a scale from 1-10. The assessment will be done on the basis of a number of criteria, such as musicality and artistry, technical level, openness to instruction, the presence of a well outlined Master study plan (if you apply for a Master) and the desired balance within the relevant department.

 

Based on the assessment made by the admissions board, a distinction will be made between the following rates:

- If the admissions board awards a mark of 10:

€ 4,650
Master students in this category receive from an external fund a KC excellence scholarship 

- If the admissions board awards a mark of 9:

€ 4,650
in this category a limited number of KC excellence scholarships from an external fund will be granted to Master students

 

- If the admissions board awards a mark of 8:

€ 4,650

 

- If the admissions board awards a mark of 7:

€ 12,000

 

The assessment of the admissions board and the definitive rate of institutional tuition fees will be made known to the candidate as soon as possible after the entrance exam.

 

The tariff set for institutional tuition fees initially remains in force for the nominal course duration.
