Student expenses - typical monthly amounts

** Most students need a temporary Dutch residence permit (VVR) for stays longer than 90 days and some students might need a visa (MVV). CES will assist you with every part of this process. Please have a look at the visa section for more information.

*** Students need sufficient health care, liability and travel insurance for the duration of their stay. Most students are covered through their home university, but CES can assist you if you need to purchase your own.

How to pay

Who will receive an invoice?

When you decide to study with CES, you either receive an invoice from CES or you settle the costs with your home university or college. For more information please contact your own Study Abroad Advisor or CES.

Cancellation policy

The Center for European Studies incurs costs for each student we register. CES applies the following cancellation regulations:

  • If a student withdraws 8 weeks or more before the start of the programme, no costs will be charged with the exception of any non-refundable visa fees, where applicable.
  • If a student withdraws between 8 and 4 weeks before the start/arrival day of the program, CES will charge 5% of the tuition fee per student who is withdrawing + non-refundable costs made for visa applications.
  • If a student withdraws less than 4 weeks before the start/arrival day of the program, CES will charge 10% of the tuition fee per student who is withdrawing + non-refundable costs made for visa applications.

Exceptions to the abovementioned cancellation regulations will be reviewed by CES on a case-by-case basis.
