Tuition Fees

Your tuition fee depends on your nationality. And whether you’ve studied in the Netherlands before. Nationalities within the European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) generally pay a lower tuition fee. The table below shows this as EU/EEA. This includes all EU countries plus Norway, Lichtenstein, Iceland and Switzerland. Students from Suriname also pay this lower fee.

Note: tuition fees have been lowered for 2021-2022 because of decisions made by the government and HAN regarding the coronacrisis.

Financial guarantee (non-EU/EEA)

This amount covers your tuition fee and your cost of living. Paying this ensures you have sufficient funds to live and study in the Netherlands. The financial guarantee is a requirement of the visa process.
