The Ministry of Education has set the statutory tuition fee for full-time courses at € 2,083. As of 2019-2020, the statutory fee for first-year Bachelor’s students enrolling for the first time in higher education in the Netherlands will be halved to € 1,041 for a period of one year.

The statutory tuition fee only applies for students who have not previously obtained a Dutch Bachelor’s or Master’s degree and are nationals of an EEA country (including the Netherlands), Switzerland or Surinam and for non-EEA students with a registered legal partnership in an EEA country or with asylum-seeker status.

Students from outside the EEA and students who have already obtained a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the Netherlands pay the institutional tuition fee, which is set by the university’s Executive Board.


You will find more information about the institutional tuition fees on the website of the University of the Arts The Hague.

The Royal Conservatoire awards Excellence Scholarships worth € 5,000 to Master’s candidates who perform best in the entrance exams (both EEA and non-EEA students are eligible for a scholarship). Click here for more information.
