  1. Payment by (digital) authorisation in five instalments (not possible for pre-Master)
  2. Payment by (digital) authorisation in one instalment (only possible for September intake)
  3. Single transfer
  4. Exemption through certification tuition fees paid

Do you receive a Scholarship

  • Utwente Scholarship: UTS/HS & OTS

    UTS/HS or OTS Scholarship students will receive the Scholarship fees on their own bank account. Therefore keep in mind that you are always responsible for the payment of the tuition fees yourself. The scholarship will not and cannot be used for the direct payment of the tuition fees.

    This means you need to arrange the payment via Studielink as the normal payment procedure, option 1 to 3 on this webpage. When you choose to pay in instalments, you need to arrange the digital authorization as soon as you have arrived in the Netherlands and have opened up a Dutch bank account.
    When you have already paid part of the fees in advance, during the visa process, this part will be deducted and the remaining part still needs to be paid as the normal procedure. 

    Please note that if you wish to pay in instalments, you can already arrange the digital authorization before receiving the first scholarship instalment as the UT will debit the first tuition fee instalment after you have received your first scholarship payment.

    Example:
    - Your tuition fee is 16.000 EUR
    - Your UTS scholarship is 12.000, so you have uploaded the scholarship letter during the visa process.
    - You have only paid for the remaining amount, which is not covered by the scholarship, during the visa process. This is 4.000 EUR
    - To get enrolled you need to arrange the payment of the other 12.000 EUR, which is covered by your scholarship and which you haven't paid during the visa process
    - Once you'll arrive in the Netherlands you will open up a Dutch bank account via a group appointment through visa
    - After opening up a bank account you can directly arrange the digital authorization in 5 instalments via Studielink. The unpaid 12.000 EUR will be devided over 5 instalments.
    - You inform Scholarship Office about the bank account number
    - The first scholarship payment will be transferred into your account as soon as they have received your bank account number. In other payment months this will happen at the beginning of the month.
    - The tuition fee instalment will be withdrawn from your account by the end of the month. 

  • External Scholarship

    If the UT does not have a contract with the scholarship provider, you are always responsible for timely payment of the tuition fee yourself.

    If the UT has a contract with the scholarship provider we will arrange the payment with the scholarship provider and we will finalize your enrolment.

    If you are in doubt whether or not the UT has a contract with a scholarship provider, please contact us or arrange the payment yourself. If it turns out there is a contract, while you have arranged the payment method yourself, we will change it.
