Tuition fees and deadlines for the EU/EEA students

Question and Answers 25 July 2017, 08:38

The tuition fees of programmes at universities in the Netherlands are equal for Dutch citizens and for inhabitants of the countries from the European Economic Area. See the list of EEA countries and visa application deadlines.

The citizens of the countries from the European Economic Area (EEA) pay the same tuition fees for university programmes in the Netherlands as local, Dutch students.

For the 2017-2018 academic year standard price of the government funded Bachelor's and Master's programmes is set to €2,006 per year.

Tuition fees for programmes at private universities and for the Master's programmes without funding start from €7,000 and are the same for Dutch, EU, and non-EU students.

Application deadlines

Visa application procedure takes less time for the citizens from EEA countries. As the result, they may apply to the university programmes closer to start dates, than non-EEA students:

  • in August for September programmes and
  • in January for the February ones.

Some programmes in universities in the Netherlands have limited number of places available, and in case of their popularity they can be filled up before the deadlines.

The European Economic Area (EEA)

The European Economic Area (EEA) functions from January 1st 1994 and consists of European Union (EU) countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway. EU includes following countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom.
