Paying your tuition fee

How to pay your tuition fee depends on your nationality.
Note: If you are an Erasmus/Exchange student, you do not need to pay a tuition fee.


Please visit for recent updates for British students.

EU/EEA students

Students can pay their tuition fee:

  • From a bank account (in your own name) from a SEPA country.
  • From a Dutch bank account.

If you use one of the above mentioned payment methods, you are able to pay in installments. 

You will receive an email with instructions from our Central Student Administration when you have a conditional offer and have accepted the offer. The Central Student Administration will verify your identity and send you the email in the months November, December and January. Note:

  • You need to arange your payment before the start of your programme.
  • It is not possible to pay by cheque, credit card or cash.  

Once you have confirmed your place in the programme, you will receive an invoice for your tuition fee and entry visa/residence permit. Check the entry visa/residence permit page for details and deadlines.

Students with scholarships

If you have been awarded a scholarship that covers the fees for your entry visa/ residence permit and your tuition fee, you can forward the invoice to your scholarship provider. There are a few exceptions:

  • If you have been awarded a scholarship that does not cover all your expenses, such as an Utrecht Excellence Scholarship, a scholarship from the faculty, or from another external scholarship organisation, you may need to pay (part of) the tuition fee as well as the required visa/residence permit fee. Please contact the International Office as soon as possible.
  • If you receive a scholarship of Alßan, Colfuturo or StuNed we will send an invoice directly to them. Please provide the International Office as soon as possible with an email address of your contact person at Alßan, Colfuturo or StuNed.
