You pay tuition every year. You will either pay the statutory or institutional tuition fee depending on your nationality and previously earned degrees in the Netherlands, among other factors, you will pay either the statutory or institutional tuition fee.
Most students pay the statutory tuition fee, which is € 2,006 for the 2017-2018 academic year.
To be eligible for the statutory tuition fee, you must meet the following conditions:
This means that you have not earned a degree in government-funded Dutch Higher Education after
31 July 1991: 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.
For new students in the 2017-2018 academic year, the institutional tuition fee for all programmes is € 7,500.
The tuition fee is € 7,277 for students who were enrolled in the part-time Fine Art and Design in Education programme on 1 September 2016 and meet the following conditions: (1) the nominal duration of studies is not yet expired and (2) the enrolment has not been interrupted.
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.
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.
