Tuition fees 2021-2022

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 and 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 CMR (council of representatives) 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.

Please note that the institutional tuition fee from September 2021 onwards may change due to the Dutch law.

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. As of 2020-2021, the statutory fee for first-year Bachelor’s students enrolling for the first time in higher education in the Netherlands will be halved to € 1,084 for a period of one year. With the discount as stated above (National Education Programme) the fee will be € 542.

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.

Excellence Scholarships and Holland Scholarships are available for 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.

You set up a direct debit authorization: If you’ve a bank account with an IBAN number in an EU country, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Monaco or San Marino, you can set up a direct debit payment to allow us to deduct the fees from your account on the agreed dates. This can be done via Studielink. You can choose to pay your tuition fees all at once, or in eight instalments.

Setting up a direct debit via Studielink is only possible if you have a bank account in the countries mentioned above. If your bank is in another country, you’ll need to pay the entire balance in one go. Transfer the entire amount by yourself by direct bank transfer. Always mention your family name, student number and date of birth.
