Application fees

At some Dutch institutions, non-EEA students or students with no prior Dutch education, have to pay an application fee or handling fee when applying for a study programme. These fees range from € 75 to € 100.
Fees and conditions vary by institution. Always make sure to check with the Dutch institution of your choice if you have to pay an application fee. Some institutions will give you a refund of the handling fee when you actually enrol at the institution.
