Pre-Master's program rates

Changes in legislation concerning tuition fees for pre-Master students

As of September 1st, 2013 the legislation on tuition fees for pre-Master students has changed. Previously students paid tuition fees to take part in the pre-Master's program, but the change in legislation now means that the fee depends on the scope of the pre-Master's program in question. Additional fees are charged for study components that fall outside the regular pre-Master's program.

Please note that the information on this page applies to the academic year 2017-2018.

What does that mean for me?

  1. The program organizers will determine the total number of credits for your pre-Master's program when you enroll in the program. With a HBO diploma this is 30 credits.
  2. The fee will be set on the basis of this program: number of credits * €33,43,- (€2.006/60 credits)
  3. You will pay your fees in one go on commencement of the pre-Master's program. (Reimbursement is not possible.)
  4. After the first semester exemptions and extra courses are charged or reimbursed.
  5. On completing the pre-Master's program, you will enroll for the Master's program and pay the statutory tuition fee.

I'm doing a Bachelor's program, but I've also started a pre-Master's program

You won't pay any fees for the pre-Master's program if you are enrolled in a second program for which you pay statutory tuition fees. You will receive confirmation of the pre-Master's program from your program organizers.

I am switching to a different pre-Master's program

If you change to a different pre-Master's program you must pay a fee for each ECTS credit of your new pre-Master's program. This will not be compensated by the fees you paid for a previous pre-Master's program.

I discontinued my pre-Master's program halfway through the year; do I get any money back?

You are not entitled to a refund for the pre-Master's program. You pay the money in one go and if you discontinue the program you do not get a refund.
