Liberal Arts and Sciences: Global Challenges (BA/BSc)
Fees and Costs
The cost of an undergraduate education at a University College has three components:
- Tuition fees
- Housing fees
- Personal Expenses
Tuition fees at LUC The Hague are made up of two elements:the tuition fee determined by the government which differs depending on citizenship, and a so called “institutional fee”.
The tuition fee is subsidized by the government for all EEA nationals and therefore differs from Non-EU students.
The institutional fee is the same for every student regardless of citizenship, and is there to cover for small class sizes, additional facilities and services available at Leiden University College. Therefore, the only “additional” cost involved when choosing for our programme will be this latter component.
|Type of Cost||EU/EEA student||Non-EU student|
Institutional fees are subject to change on a yearly basis.
The housing fees cover the costs of living on campus and making use of the facilities available. Leiden University College's housing consists mainly of single-studio apartments (kitchen, bathroom, and living area) that are rented out fully furnished. Students live on campus for the first two years of their studies.
The average cost for a single studio apartment for 2017-2018 is of €578 per month including service costs. This cost is excluding any rent benefits students may be eligible for in order to reduce the cost. More information on this under 'Financial Support'.
Living expenses can only be estimated as this largely depends on your individual life style. Personal expenses include but are not limited to health insurance costs, food, transportation and leisure activities.
|Type of cost||Average amount in €/ month|
|Food, clothes, phone costs||€300-€400|
Please keep in mind that personal expenses vary depending on your spending habits. Some students may be able to request financial support from the government for health insurance costs, as well as a travel component.
