The tuition fee you pay depends on factors such as your nationality, whether or not you already have a higher education degree in the Netherlands, the type of enrolment and the year in which your studies commence.

The national government and the Ministry of Education (OCW) intend to provide financial support for students, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. They will make money available to reduce the tuition fees for the academic year 2021-2022. The University Council has approved the tuition fee rates. The proposal from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science has yet to be approved in the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Re-enrolment refers to resumption of the original study programme.

The Ministry of Education has set the statutory tuition fee for full-time courses at € 2,168. With the discount as stated above (National Education Programme) the fee will be € 1,084.

The statutory tuition fee applies only for students who have not already obtained a Dutch Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

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.
