Tuition fees

Master programs

  • EU: EUR 2.143
  • Non-EU: EUR 15.100

Studying in a foreign country can be very expensive. Fortunately, the Dutch government subsidizes higher education which leads to lower tuition fees for students with a nationality from a country belonging to the European Economic Area (EEA). In recent years, more and more students from outside the EEA have decided to study in the Netherlands, resulting in a growing demand for academic scholarships.

Scholarships & funding

There are scholarships and grants for two groups:

1. Students from abroad, who wish to study at EUR or are already doing so;

2. Students studying at EUR, wishing to go abroad for a while during or after their current study program.
