The University of Twente applies two types of student tuition fees. Find out which fee is the right one for you.
Below you find the right tuition fee for your situation. Tuition fees are adjusted annually on the basis of the Dutch Consumer Price Index and an academic year is the annual period of sessions beginning in September and ending in June.
If you are a national of an EU/EEA country, it is likely you need to pay the so-called ‘statutory tuition fee’. This fee is determined and subsidized by the Dutch government. The statutory tuition fee applies to most, but not all EU/EEA countries and/or master’s programmes (also see ‘Institutional tuition fee’).
In the first half of 2018 the Dutch government proposed a bill to introduce halving of tuition fee. The proposal has led to reduced rates per academic year 2018/2019 for freshmen Bachelor's students. Check to see if the halving of the tuition fees applies to you, which conditions you should meet and what the tuition fee will be.

Note: The annual tuition fees for EU/EEA and non-EU/EEA students to pursue the Bachelor's programme in Technology and Liberal Arts & Sciences (ATLAS) at our University College Twente are higher than those charged for other Bachelor's programmes.
