Explanation regarding the level of the institutional tuition fees

In accordance with changed legislation as of 1 September 2010, students who wish to gain a second degree at the same level as their first one no longer qualify for statutory tuition fees. The Dutch government will fund one Bachelor’s degree and one Master’s degree per student.

Due to the fact that no government funding is available for a second degree at the same level, the institutional tuition fees are set to cover the real costs. For non- technical studies, the fee is lower than for technical studies. This is because studies in the domains of science technology and engineering make more use of expensive research facilities (e.g. labs).

The Executive Board of the University presents the institutional tuition fee rates to the University Council for advice on an annual basis. The institutional tuition fees are adjusted annually based on inflation rates.

*Transitional arrangement for increased institutional rates per 2019-2020

Per the academic year of 2019-2020, the institutional rates will increase once more, in addition to the annual regular increase. University of Twente wants to meet students who have started a Bachelor's or master's programme before the study year of 2019-2020. A transitional arrangement has been set up for this purpose. Conditions to be met in order to qualify for the transitional arrangement and the corresponding tuition rates for upcoming study years can be found here.

Read more about the condtions and examples

Examples:

Your premaster is 30 EC and you will start in the academic year 2018-2019. You will pay € 34.34 x 30 EC = € 1030.20.
Your premaster is 45 EC and you will start in the academic year 2019-2020. You will pay € 34.72 x 45 EC = € 1,562,40.

Conditions:

  • This regulation applies to both Dutch and international students with a premaster enrolment.
  • Instead of paying tuition fees, you will pay an amount in one go and in advance for your entire premaster programme.
  • There are two payment methods:
    • Authorisation in one instalment (not possible when you start from 1 February)
    • Transfer the money yourself
  • You have no right to a refund (repayment of a part of the amount paid) in the event that you de-enrol your premaster enrolment prematurely.

EXEMption tuition fee: (Proof of payment tuition fee)

  • If you are enrolled as a student at another Dutch university and have paid the statutory fee, a certificate of payment of tuition fees (BBC) will be accepted when registering at the University of Twente. As a student, you will be asked to provide an original proof of payment of tuition fee (BBC) with your (re-)enrolment in good time.
  • If you are a student at another Dutch university and have paid the institutional fee, you cannot be registered as a student with a proof of tuition fees (BBC). As a student you have to pay tuition fees at the University of Twente.
