The annual tuition fee depends on a student’s nationality, official living address and study background. As the fee can differ slightly per year, it is announced and updated below in the Spring (latest update: April 1, 2016).
Tuition fee 2016-2017
For EU/EEA students (who apply for their first master course in the Netherlands), the annual tuition fee for the full-time course in 2016-17 is 1984 Euros. The annual tuition fee for the part-time course is 1630 Euros.
EU/EEA countries are: Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain, Czech Republic, United Kingdom, Iceland, Sweden, Switzerland.
Accepted EU/EEA students should have an official living address in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg or one of the German states Bremen, Niedersachsen or Nordrhein-Westfalen. If this is not the case, then students will be charged for 9900 Euros for the annual tuition fee.
For non-EU/EEA students, the annual tuition fee for the full-time and part-time course differs from EU/EEA students. The fee for the full-time and part-time course in 2016-17 is 9900 Euros.

Students with a Dutch bank account can pay the fee in terms.
Tuition fee deadline
The final deadline for the payment of tuition fees is August 30. Beyond this deadline, students can not be officially registered with Rotterdam University and the Dutch Ministry of Education, which has consequences for both the student’s grant possibilities and the programme’s funding.
Non-EU students who need to apply for entry visa to be able to study in the Netherlands must pay their fees and provide proof that they have sufficient funding to live and study in the Netherlands before June 15.
