Housing, fees and immigration

Different individuals are used to different lifestyles and standards of living, hence the cost of your residence in the Netherlands will obviously vary depending on what you choose and can afford.

For more information regarding costs of living and financial support please consult the page dedicated to financing your stay. Housing-related information will certainly be of great influence to preparation. For details regarding tuition fees you are welcome to visit the dedicated page  and/or contact Erasmus Student Service Center. In case you want to know more about job possibilities or legal regulations please visit the website providing advice on working in the Netherlands.

Please note that for non-EEA applicants there are also costs associated with visas and/or residence permits. Be sure to upload all documentation reflecting your nationality and/ or immigration status by submitting all the necessary documentation under proof of ID section of application for admission to a degree programme. This way the university will have enough information in order to determine the right amount of tuition fees.

Please contact your Dutch embassy or consulate for more information, or visit the website and search for scholarships. For information regarding further funding possibilities visit or visit ScholarshipPortal, a central European website providing information on scholarships for studying in Europe.
