The University of Twente applies two types of student tuition fees. Find out which fee is right 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 subsidised by the Dutch government. The statutory tuition fee applies to most, but not all students from EU/EEA countries and/or master’s (also see ‘Institutional tuition fee’). Visit the website of Student Services for detailed payment conditions, such as the tuition fee rates for starting your studies in February or part-time.
Overview of statutory tuition fees for master's
All master's, except for the Master's in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC)
€ 2,209 per year
€ 2,314 per year
If you are a national of a non-EU/EEA country, you will need to pay the so-called 'institutional fee'. This fee is higher than the statutory fee because Dutch universities do not receive government funding for non-EU/EEA students. Visit the website of Student Services for detailed payment conditions, such as the tuition fee rates for starting your studies in February or part-time.
Overview of institutional tuition fees for master's
€ 12,750 per year
€ 14,000 per year
€ 16,500 per year
€ 16,750 per year
The Master's in Geo-information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) has a different fee structure.
* The institutional fee you will need to pay depends on the type of programme you will follow. Check below to see whether you will follow an Alpha-Gamma or Bèta programme.
To follow a pre-master's you have to pay an amount per EC. The total amount is based on the number of EC’s from your pre-master's.
The amount per EC is set at € 36.82 for the academic year of 2022-2023.
Your pre-master's is 30 EC: you will pay € 36.82 x 30 EC = € 1,104.60
Your pre-master's is 45 EC: you will pay € 36.82 x 45 EC = € 1,656.90
If you apply for a scholarship for a two- or three-year course, bear in mind that the institutional tuition fees for the following year are not the same. The fees for the subsequent years increase yearly and are therefore higher than year 1. Take this into account when applying for a scholarship. This can prevent you from having to co-finance the difference in tuition fees for the following years.
