If you are not a national of an EEA country, Suriname or Switzerland you must generally pay an institutional tuition fee. However if, on the basis of your Dutch residence permit, you are eligible for student finance from the Dutch education agency (DUO) you are entitled to pay statutory tuition fee. Information on qualifying residence permits can be found in the DUO nationality chart.

If you do not qualify for Dutch student finance and you are not a national of an EEA country, Suriname or Switzerland, you can find the amount of tuition fee you are required to pay for your study programme here below. These tariffs apply for both full-time and part-time study. 

Please note! If you are going to study at Leiden University via a cooperation agreement, the tariffs stated in the agreement apply.

Exceptions

In some cases, nationals of EEA countries, Suriname or Switzerland may be permitted to pay tuition fees set at the same amount as the statutory tuition fee for their second degree programme.

  • If your second degree programme is in the field of healthcare or teacher training you are entitled to pay institutional tuition fees set at the same amount as the statutory tuition fee.
  • If you begin your second master’s programme while you are still following your first master’s programme, you may pay an institutional tuition fee set at the same amount as statutory tuition fee for your second degree programme – on condition that you remain continuously registered as a student.
  • If you begin a second master's programme at Leiden University in the academic year directly following the year in which you obtained your first master's degree at Leiden University you may pay an institutional tuition fee set at the same amount as the statutory tuition fee.

You pay a pre-master tariff of € 37 per EC with a maximization of the academic year tuition fee.
