Financial information for Postgraduate Students

Many students are first drawn to the idea of studying in Holland for financial reasons. Almost all Masters degrees are cheaper in the Netherlands than in England if you have an EU passport. If you are British, Brexit has totally changed the financial calculation.

The reality of Brexit for British nationals is:

  • No financial support from Student Finance England
  • No financial support from the Dutch government
  • Full international tuition fees
  • Limited scholarship availability

We have yet to update all of the information on this site, partly because nothing has changed for EU nationals and many British students have access to an EU passport. If that applies to you then nothing has changed. If you are only British, however, the financial reality is now far worse than it was. That is not to say that Dutch universities have become bad options as a result of Brexit. In some cases they might still actually be cheaper than Master's Degrees at British universities.

This part of the site aims to answer some of the key questions about the ins and outs of financing your studies in the Netherlands.
