Tuition Fees in Amsterdam

Education in Amsterdam - Student Life

How much does it cost to study in Amsterdam? That depends on where you're from and which university you'll be attending. 

Students from the EU/EEA, Switzerland and Suriname who are pursuing their first degree in the Netherlands pay the same tuition fees as Dutch students. Each year, the Dutch government determines these statutory university fees. These fees can be higher for some programs, so it's a great idea to check with your prospective university for costs.

If you're not from the areas listed above or if you're not enrolling in your second Bachelor's or Master's program, then you'll need to pay the institution's tuition fee which varies across programs. Again, it's recommended to check university websites.
