The Dutch Government has decided to make changes to the tuition fees of the 2021-2022 academic year in light of the Coronavirus pandemic. As such, for the 2021-2022 academic year all students will pay a lower tuition fee than would normally be the case. In regular years, the government sets a tuition fee (statutory fee) and UCR adds a fee for small scale and intensive education. Next to that, non-EEA students need to pay the institutional fee that UCR sets itself.

For 2021-2022 the statutory fee will be halved for all students studying in the Netherlands. For all UCR students this means a reduction of € 1,084.

Student Group Original Tuition Fee
Updated Tuition Fee
EEA Students Incoming * € 3,543 € 1,917

Non-EEA Students Incoming and Already at UCR € 9,091 € 8,007


* This fee only applies to students who start their first bachelor in Dutch higher education. These students have been entitled to a regular discount of half the statutory fee since 2018. For 2021-2022 the discount will be an additional € 542.
If you have previously started a bachelor in the Netherlands, the ‘Already at UCR’ fee applies.
