Please note: Statutory tuition fees first-year bachelor's students halved from academic year 2018/19
The Dutch cabinet intends to halve the statutory tuition fees for specific groups first-year bachelor's students from the academic year 2018/19 on. The right to a halved statutory tuition fee applies once for a consecutive period of 12 months. Master's students are not eligible for halving of the statutory tuition fees.
The bill has passed the Dutch Lower Chamber on 26 April 2018. The Dutch Upper Chamber still has to approve the plans.
You can find more information on the Government website.
What do you have to pay at UM if you are eligible for the halving of the statutory tuition fee:
- UM bachelor’s programmes: € 1,030 instead of € 2,060
- University College Maastricht (UCM): € 1,702 instead of € 3,405
Institutional tuition fees
The fees indicated above apply only to students who meet a couple of requirements. These requirements concern your nationality or the start of a second study programme. If you don't meet these requirements, then you need to pay the institutional tuition fee.
