What will the Master Spatial Engineering cost you?

Tuition fees

Statutory tuition fee

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 Netherlands, the statutory tuition fee for the academic year 2018-2019 is:

  • Euro 2,060 per year for a master’s programme. Each (academic) year the tuition fee will be adjusted.

  • Euro 14,250 per year for a 2-year master’s programme. Each (academic) year the tuition fee will be adjusted.
