Your tuition fee depends on your nationality. And whether you’ve studied in the Netherlands before. Exchange students from partner universities pay tuition to their home institution only.

Lowered tuition fee in 1st year of study for EU/EEA students
The Dutch government has lowered the tuition fee for many students in their 1st year of study. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the lowered tuition fee is € 1,071.
This applies to you if:
- you are an EU/EEA student
- you are entering Dutch higher education (university and university of applied sciences) for the 1st time

Note: the lowered tuition fee applies only in your 1st year of study. In your following years of study, you pay the regular tuition fee. See the table above for the regular fees.

Financial guarantee (non-EU/EEA)
The cost of living in the Netherlands may be very different from in your home country. That’s why we ask you to pay a financial guarantee. This amount covers your cost of living. Paying this ensures you have sufficient funds to live and study in the Netherlands. The financial guarantee is part of the visa process and only applies to degree-seeking students.
HAN offers financial aid to talented bachelor students. Are you an outstanding achiever from outside the EU/EEA? Perhaps you’re eligible for one of the HAN scholarships.
