Tuition Fee & Institutional Fee

The tuition fees of LUC The Hague have two elements: the tuition fee and institutional fee. These fees are combined and referred to as Tuition Fee by the Central Student Administration.

Tuition Fee

All students are required by Dutch law to pay the tuition fee. The amount depends on your nationality.

Institutional Fee

All LUC students have to pay an additional institutional fee, which covers the additional costs of small class sizes, academic advisors, study advisors, student psychologists, student's Fortuna membership, college-wide events and additional facilities and services.

Payment Methods

There are several methods of payment available. Please view the different payment methods and instructions here.

All EEA nationals need to arrange the payment of the tuition fee in Studielink. Please indicate in Studielink how you intend to pay. Afterwards the Central Student Administration determines the amount of tuition fee based on your nationality.

If you wish to pay in instalments from a Dutch bank account but you do not have one yet, you will have to wait with filling out your details until you opened a bank account in the Netherlands.

All non-EEA nationals cannot arrange the payment of the tuition fees via Studielink. You will receive an invoice from the Financial Department stating the amount of tuition fee and the methods of payment available. You will be contacted about this in July via your email connected to Studielink.


Please follow this link, for an overview of how digital authorisation via Studielink works with several step-by-step instructions. You can only pay tuition fees with digital authorisation if you have a bank account from a country in the SEPA area (EEA). If someone else (e.g. your father/mother) will pay, they also must have a bank account in the SEPA area AND have their own DigiD (a Digital Identity for Dutch citizens).

Please contact the Front Office Student Affairs.

All non EEA students will receive an invoice from the Financial Department from July onwards. If you have not received anything yet in August, please send an email to the financial department to request an invoice: fa@sea.leidenuniv.nl

Please download the power or attorney for tuition fee payment form on the ‘methods of payment’ webpage here and return it to the financial department of Leiden University (fa@sea.leidenuniv.nl)
