this page gives an overview of the tuition fees for your specific situation and per academic year.
What study phase applies to you?
If you are already studying at another Dutch university and have squared away your tuition fees, we have got some information for you about registering at UT.
If you have paid the statutory fee:
- You can use a "Certificate of Payment of Tuition Fees" (or BBC for short) to get registered at UT.
- If your current university supports it, you can arrange your BBC from Studielink.
- If your current university does not support it, bring us the original proof of payment. We need that to get you officially enrolled.
If you are a student at another Dutch university and have paid the institutional fee, you cannot be registered as a student with a certificate of payment of tuition fees (BBC). As a student, you have to pay tuition fees at the University of Twente.
You are required to pay tuition fees for the duration of your enrolment. This means that if you take longer to graduate (i.e. it takes you 3 years instead of 2 years to complete your study programme), you will be required to pay an additional amount of tuition fee. The amount will be calculated based on the duration of your enrolment at UT.
You pay the statutory tuition fee if you meet both the requirements below:
- Enrolment requirement and
- Nationality requirement
The statutory tuition fee applies only for a first bachelor's or a first master's programme and only if you meet all the requirements for the statutory tuition fee. If you graduated in the Netherlands with a bachelor's or master's degree, or a doctoral after September 1991 you will pay the institutional tuition fee for your second bachelor's or master's programme.
There are two exceptions to the above-mentioned rule:
1 For the University of Twente the following Bachelor's programmes B Health Sciences and B Technical Medicine and the following Master's programmes M Technical Medicine and M Health Sciences.
2 For the University of Twente the following Master's-programmes M Social Sciences and Humanities Education and M Science Education and Communication
