Financial Information

Many students are first drawn to the idea of studying in Holland for financial reasons. With tuition fees currently much lower than in England this can be a compelling reason for considering Dutch higher education.

From 2021, the current version of Brexit means that UK nationals will have to pay the higher, international student fees. We are in the process of introducing these to the website and they can be different for every degree programme. We have summarised what this means in the news section of the website but to be even clearer, if you are a British national this is what Brexit means:

  • No support from Student Finance England (no change there)
  • No support from the Dutch government for tuition fees
  • No support from the Dutch government for living costs (the limited options that existed are no longer available)
  • Full international tuition fees (generally from €7,500 to €15,000 per year)
  • Proof of finances required in order to obtain a student visa

Studying in the Netherlands is not free, however, even for EU nationals. There are costs involved. You need to consider the cost of living as well as tuition fees. There are some sources of loan finance available to you but it is unlikely that you will be able to borrow all the money you need.

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.
