Tuition Fees

​International students enrolled in one of the programmes at Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, have to pay tuition fees for each academic year that he/she is enrolled.

The amount that you will be required to pay depends on your nationality, the programme you have applied for and whether you have studied in the Netherlands before. If the latter applies to you, please contact the Financial Department to enquire about the amount you will have to pay.​​

The government has introduced a legislative proposal to cut tuition fees for first-year (EU) students in half. In addition, the government proposes to halve the tuition fees for first- and second-year students in teacher education. These amendments are designed to enter into force as from the 2018-2019 academic year. However, the Lower and Upper House still need to approve these plans. Keep an eye on the website of the Dutch central government for up-to-date information on the implementation of this act.
