As a degree-seeking student you will have to pay annual tuition fees. Students from the EU pay the statutory tuition fees, and non-EU students pay the institutional tuition fees. Generally speaking, these fees are waived for exchange students from partner universities.
What is your tuition fee?
To determine how much you have to pay, answer the questions in the tuition fee indicator. If you are registered for more than one programme, you pay the highest fee only once. If you join a study programme later in the academic year, you only pay tuition fees for the months during which you are actually enrolled.
Statutory and institutional tuition fee
In the Netherlands, the costs of education are covered partly by students in the form of tuition fees, and partly by government contributions. If you already have a degree equivalent to your current programme of study or when you do not have an EU nationality you pay a higher tuition fee. This is because Zuyd does not receive a government contribution to subsidize the costs of your education.
The higher rate is the sum of the fixed annual statutory tuition and former government contribution (without the diploma fee). The higher rate is indexed annually by a percentage equal to the index of the statutory tuition. The institutional fees are annually determined by the Executive Board. See also the Regulations on Admission to and Enrolment 2023-2024. Excellent non-EU students who have to pay the higher tuition fees, can apply for a scholarship.
Lower fee for first-year students
If it is the first time you are enrolling in a bachelor's degree programme or associate degree programme, then you may be eligible to pay only half of the statutory tuition fees for the first year when you are a Dutch, EU-, Surinam or Swiss citizen.
