As an EU-student you have two options for the payment of tuition:
- Direct debit payment of the full tuition amount at the beginning of the academic year
If you choose this option, the full tuition fee is debited from the specified bank account in one payment. The payment will be made around September.
- Direct debit payment in ten instalments
You can choose to pay your tuition fees in ten instalments. Each month a part of the tuition fee will be collected from the specified bank account. The first instalment includes €23,00 of administration costs.
If you have an European IBAN bank account in the SEPA-area, you can pay your tuition fees by digital authorisation from your own personal bank account. Take note: do not fill in bank details of someone else (for example your parents).
Take the following steps for digital authorisation:
- The digital authorisation have to be done in Studielink (as from June)
- Sign in with your DigiD
- Go to 'My to do list' and click 'enter your payment details'. Here you can enter your payment details and
in how many instalments you wish to pay (one, or ten equal instalments). After
you have done this, you will receive an e-mail via Studielink asking you to
confirm the digital authorisation. Only upon confirmation have you fulfilled
your payment obligation.
While living in the Netherlands you are required to have a health insurance policy. As a foreign student you must sign up for a health insurance and a liability insurance plan.
Payment tuition fee without a bank account within the SEPA-area
If you do not have a bank account within
the SEPA area and you still want to pay in instalments, then it is important to
open a bank account as soon as possible after your arrival in the Netherlands
and to enter the details of this account in Studielink before 1 September. If
you fail to do this, the full amount of the tuition fees due for the academic
year of that year must have been transferred to the HZ University of Applied
Sciences bank account before 1 September. If you do not have a bank account within
the SEPA area and you cannot or do not want to apply for a bank account, the
tuition fees must be paid in full before 1 September. You can request an
invoice for this by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
