Tuition Fees

The tuition fee for European students (anyone holding an EU/EEA passport) is set at €4,610 for the 2024-2025 academic year. There are more expenses associated with studying at UCR which you can find further down on this page.

The tuition fee for students with a non-EU/EEA nationality is set at €10,910 for the 2024-2025 academic year. Students with a non-EU/EEA nationality will have to pay for a visa and/or residence permit. At the moment, the residence permit to stay in the Netherlands for three years costs € 257 in total. Students starting in the Spring semester will only pay tuition fees for that semester (e.g. a student starting in Spring 2025, will pay only half of their tuition fees for the Academic Year 2024-2025).


Rent on campus varies between €300 and €500 per month. Depending on location and price students may apply for rent allowance with the Dutch government. The cost of housing at UCR is estimated at approximately € 400 per month (€ 4,800 per year). This covers rent and utilities: gas, water, and electricity. Students have the use of a private bedroom and depending on location a private or a shared living room, kitchenette and bathroom.

The cost of living (food, clothes, school supplies) is estimated at €500 per month, but this varies per student based on their own lifestyle.

Financial Support

Building University College Roosevelt Middelburg

Since we welcome all types of students regardless of background, we realize that applicants come from a wide range of socio-economic circumstances as well. For that reason, we offer two different payments options for the yearly tuition fee. You can either pay the fee in one go at the start of the academic year, or you can pay the tuition in five instalments. You can indicate your preferred plan during the final step in your admissions process.*

UCR also offers several other options for financial support, such as the UCR scholarship. For more information, please check our website.

*Do note that non-EEA students have to pay the full first year tuition fee if you need a residence permit to study in the Netherlands, as you have to pay for the full first year before you start your residence permit application.
