To study at a university, you are required to pay tuition. How much you need to pay at Maastricht University (UM) depends on a number of factors, such as which study programme you choose, whether you study full-time or part-time, whether this is your first or second study and/or your nationality.
|Academic year 2019/20||Academic year 2020/21|
|Full-time||€ 2,083||€ 2,143|
|Part-time||€ 1,482||€ 1,525|
|University College Maastricht (UCM)||€ 3,445||€ 3,545|
|Maastricht Science Programme (MSP)||€ 2,083||€ 3,545*|
|MA Forensic Psychology||€ 3,760||€ 3,870|
* Exception: students who were enrolled in MSP in the academic year 2019/20 or earlier pay the statutory tuition fee of € 2,143 instead of the increased statutory tuition fee if they re-enrol in MSP for the academic year 2020/21.
Please note: Statutory tuition fees for first-year bachelor's students halved
Bachelor's students, who have not previously been enrolled at a higher professional education (HBO) or university and who are eligible for statutory tuition fees, pay a halved rate in the first academic year. These students will be entitled to pay the halved fee once during a consecutive period of 12 months. Master's students are not eligible for the halved fee.
You can find more information on the Government website.
