Study costs at a Netherlands university

Tuition isn’t free but it is subsidised by the Dutch government and is a big draw to study in the Netherlands. This keeps costs below those in the USA, Australia and the UK. For example in the 2019/20 academic year, annual fees at some universities started at £1,900. The cost of living is approximately £700 to £1,000 per month depending on the city where you study.  We estimate a third of this will be accommodation with an average room costing £250 - £500. A good level of English language competence is necessary to study at a Netherlands university. If English is not your first language, you will need to show your results from an accepted English language test when applying for your course - no lower than 6.0 IELTS or TEOFL.
