Please note: discount on tuition in academic year 2021-2022
Because of the corona crisis, the government drew up the National Education Programme in order to offer students prospects. One of the measures in this programme is a reduction in the statutory tuition for the 2021-2022 academic year. ArtEZ has decided to give the students who pay the institutional tuition fee a discount as well. This discount applies to the 2021-2022 academic year. The discounts are calculated in the amounts below.

Statutory tuition fee

Most students pay the statutory tuition fee, which is € 1,084 for the 2021-2022 academic year. To be eligible for the statutory tuition fee, you must meet the following conditions:

1. Nationality

You meet one of the following conditions:

  • You have the Dutch nationality.
  • You have the nationality of a EU/EEA country, Suriname or Switzerland.
  • You are the partner or child of a non-Dutch EU/EEA citizen who lives or works in the Netherlands.
  • You have a residence permit type II, III, IV, V or ‘Article 50 TEU’.
  • You have a type I residence permit with the appropriate condition. Please refer to the terms and conditions help.
  • You are a national of the United Kingdom (UK) and has a right of residence 28, 29, 40 or 30 (the last one temporarily until 1 July 2021).

2. No previous degree

This means that you have not earned a degree in government-funded Dutch Higher Education after
31 July 1991: an Associate degree, a Bachelor's degree or a Master's degree if you are going to do an Associate degree, a Bachelor’s degree if you are going to do a Bachelor’s programme or a Master’s degree if you are going to do a Master’s degree. If you already have a degree and are planning to pursue a programme in the field of either education or healthcare, you will pay the statutory tuition fee (provided that your first degree is not in education or healthcare).

ArtEZ can charge the institutional tuition fee if, in the course of the year, a student no longer meets these conditions.

Institutional tuition fee

For new students in the 2021-2022 academic year, the institutional tuition fee for all Bachelor programmes and Associate Degree programmes is € 8,616. For all Master programmes the institutional fee is € 9,616.

The amount of the institutional tuition fee is set by the Board of Governors and can vary by programme or group of students. It cannot be lower than the statutory tuition fee. Government funding for initial studies differentiates between various programmes: art programmes receive more government funding than many other programmes. ArtEZ has chosen an institutional tuition fee that is equal to the government funding for a financed student plus the statutory tuition fee. This is lower than the actual amount spent per student.

If in the course of the year you no longer meet the conditions for the statutory tuition fee, ArtEZ can proceed to charge the institutional tuition fee.

Two study programmes simultaneously

Students who are following more than one programme at a time, only pay the statutory tuition fee for their second study programme if they have obtained their first degree and have yet to complete their second.
