Fees Degree Students

The cost of an undergraduate education at University College has three elements: tuition fees, campus fees and personal expenses.

Tuition Fees

University College, as part of Utrecht University, receives state funding for students with European Economic Area (EEA) citizenship. As a consequence UCU charges different tuition fees for EEA and non-EEA citizens. EEA countries are: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxemburg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovak Republic, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom. Citizens of Switzerland and Surinam also pay the EEA fee. 

Campus Fees

The campus fees cover the general costs of living on campus and making use of the campus facilities. Water, electricity and internet connectivity are included. More information about Room & Board. You can find a breakdown of the Room & Board fees here (2016 - 2017).

All students are automatically a member of the University College Student Association.

Personal Expenses

Students face personal expenses such as clothes, books, sports, insurance, and travel and living expenses during the holidays. Non-EEA students will also have to pay for a residence permit. Students need an additional € 3100,- (estimate) a year to cover these costs. From September 2013 onwards, new students no longer pay the international profile fee. Instead the tuition fee is raised. Students can apply for a student loan for the full amount (previously this was not possible for the international profile fee).
