Payment by (digital) authorization in five equal instalments or all at once

payments within Europe.

SEPA = Single Euro Payments Area; the area within Europe where you can make your payments

in one way.

If you meet the requirements necessary for paying your tuition fees by authorization, but you are unable to use the digital authorization in Studielink, please sent an email to studentservices@utwente.nl
