Modified on Thu, 20 Oct 2022 at 12:40 PM

The statutory fee is a fixed amount determined by the Dutch government. You are eligible for the statutory tuition fee if you are enrolled as a student for a public funded program and meet the requirements.  

Statutory tuition fee requirements 
To be eligible for the statutory tuition fee, you must fulfil two conditions:

  1. You have an EEA, Swiss or Surinamese nationality. To find out if you meet the nationality requirement, you can use the DUO website. In addition to this requirement, you must also meet the following:
  2. You did not obtain an equivalent degree at a Dutch university or at a Dutch university of applied sciences after 31 August 1991. An exception applies to students who are going to study in the field of healthcare or education for the first time. After you have already obtained another degree, you may obtain one more degree in healthcare or one more degree in education. For more information, please contact the Erasmus Student Service Center.
