How much do you need to pay for your Master's? Find out about the tuition fees.

The tuition fee you will need to pay depends on two factors: your nationality and the type of programme (Alpha-Gamma or Bèta) you have chosen to follow. The Master's in Industrial Design Engineering is a Bèta programme. Find out more about the tuition fees for this Master's below.

Tuition fees for EU/EEA students

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 and will be adjusted each academic year. 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.

2023-2024 (Sep-Aug)

€ 2,314 per year

2024-2025 (Sep-Aug)

€ 2,530 per year

Tuition fees for non-EU/EEA students

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

Tuition fees for Pre-master's students

There is no fixed tuition fee for a pre-master's programme at UT, since the length and study load of a pre-master's may vary per student. Programmes can vary from 15 to 60 EC. 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 € 38.57 for the academic year of 2023-2024.

Two examples

Your pre-master's is 30 EC: you will pay € 38.57 x 30 EC = € 1,157.10
Your pre-master's is 45 EC: you will pay € 38.57 x 45 EC = € 1,735.65

European Credit Transfer System

Student workload at Dutch universities is expressed in EC, also named ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System), which is widely used throughout the European Union. In the Netherlands, each credit represents 28 hours of work.

Applying for a scholarship?

If you apply for a scholarship for a two- or three-year programme, 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 the first year. 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.
