Paying tuition fees

There are three methods for paying your tuition fees: via a digital authorisation, a direct bank transfer or with a Proof of Payment of Tuition Fees. Go to Tuition fees if you need more information about the tuition fee you have to pay. 

Digital authorisation in Studielink

With this digital authorisation, you authorise ArtEZ to debit the tuition fees from your bank account at once or in ten instalments. The digital authorisation is only possible if your bank is located in the Netherlands or another SEPA country. If this is through a Dutch bank account it is possible for someone else to pay for you via the digital authorisation. Please note: this person must have DigiD login information to perform this transaction!


In your Studielinkaccount, indicate that you wish to pay the tuition fees via the digital authorisation. This is possible as soon as ArtEZ has made the payment page accessible in Studielink (from mid-June). You will receive an e-mail message about this. In the Studielink step-by-step plan Digital (direct debit) authorisation you will find further information about the digital authorisation. Please note that there is a difference between paying via the digital authorisation and paying via a digital direct debit authorisation. At ArtEZ, it is not possible to pay via a digital direct debit authorisation.

Print out the authorisation to check the tuition fees amount and to know in which months the tuition fees are deducted. You will then receive further instructions on how to fill in and confirm the authorisation via messages in your mailbox and in your Studielink account. For payment in ten instalments, administration costs (€ 15,-) will be charged. Make sure that you have confirmed the online authorisation in advance of the start of your study programme!

The booking dates of the tuition fee instalments are around:

24 September, 24 October, 24 November, 24 December, 24 January, 24 February, 24 March, 24 April, 24 May and 24 June.

Transfer of the entire amount

You can also transfer the tuition fee in a lump sum to the ArtEZ’s bank account. Students who have confirmed an online authorisation in Studielink may still choose to transfer the amount themselves. This does mean, however, that you must pay the entire amount at once. The tuition fee must be deposited in ArtEZ's bank account no later than 31 August.
With the tuition fee calculator, you can easily calculate the tuition fee you will have to pay for your programme.

Proof of Payment of Tuition Fees (BBC)

According to the law you only have to pay the statutory tuition fees to one educational institution. If you also start attending a study programme at a different education institution, ask the education institution to wich you have paid the statutory tuition fees a proof of payment of tuition fees (BBC). You may be able to use this recceipt to pay tuition fees to the other institution. Via Studielink you can indicate that you wish to pay using a BBC. Depending on whether the education institution supports this it may be possible to apply and forward a copy of the BBC via Studielink. If an institution does not yet support this, you can apply for a BBC or hand it in to the Student Affairs Department

Second study

If you are doing a second study programme at another institution alongside your ArtEZ programme, you may be entitled to a tuition fee exemption at the other institution. Check the information above about how to apply and hand in a proof of payment of tuition fees (BBC). The tuition fee exemption only applies for the statutory tuition fee.

You are only officially enrolled at the start of the study year after you have met all the enrolment criteria

Debt Protocol

For the Debt Protocol we refer to our Student Charter, Annex I Regulation specifications. Article 10 explains the rules about paying the tuition fees.
