Payment tuition fees
In addition to tuition, non-EU students should be aware of additional administration and living costs. Non-EU students will receive an invoice from HZ in June. The invoice will include the required amount for 'living expenses'. Once you have arrived in the Netherlands and have opened a Dutch bank account HZ will transfer this amount back to you (if necessary, the cost of accommodation will be deducted if you choose this option and rented a room with housing corporation APV or l’escaut).
Are you a non-EU student, already living in the EU, and do you have an European IBAN bank account in the SEPA-area? Then you can pay your tuition fees, 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 username and password
- Go to 'My to do list' and click 'enter your payment details'
Costs of living
Costs of living/year: a proof of sufficient means is required by the Dutch immigration services. The monthly amount that you should have is €870,-. For one academic year, this means an (annual) total of approximately € 10,500. However, at each re-enrolment (a student is enrolled for one academic year – from September till August) you may be asked again to provide proof of sufficient funds for the next period of stay.
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.
