Financing your study

The amount for tuition fee* is € 3.950,- for our half year prep school and € 7.890,- for our full year prep school. The prep school offers a full range of facilities included in your fees, such as:
  • All learning materials are included

  • An e-mail account with access to BlackBoard and QuestionMark (THUAS learning and testing management systems)
  • A social program ( join the programme and find out more)

Package fee

Students with a non-EU/EER nationality need a residence permit for the purpose of study and when applicable an entry visa (MVV). It is not possible to study with a tourist visa. It is also not possible to apply for your own entry visa and/or residence permit for the purpose of study and this will be arranged by The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS).

Dutch immigration regulations require non EU/EER-students to proof they have sufficient funds to cover the tuition fees and living expenses for at least one year (or the duration of stay). The Hague University of Applied Sciences has to observe these regulations when applying for visa and resident permits for its students.

In relation to this, we request students to transfer a package fee covering tuition fees and living expenses. 
Unfortunately there is no scholarship available for the PREP school and it is also not possible to pay in instalments. 

  • For the half year PREP school we require a package fee of € 14.750,-
  • For the full year PREP school we require a package fee of € 19.000,- 
After receiving the package fee before the deadline, we will pay and arrange the following for you:

  • Tuition fees for the PREP school
  • Health insurance for the first academic year (you need to extend this yourself)
  • Legal fees for the application of your entry visa (MVV) and/or residence permit (non refundable) 
The remaining amount is to proof to the immigration services that you have sufficient financial means to provide in your own needs. This amount will be refunded to your Dutch bank account within 2-4 weeks after receiving the request for refund form including a clear copy of your (Dutch) bank card. 

Living costs & daily expenses

Your daily expenses may include food, housing, public transport, books, clothes, and social costs such as cinema tickets. Experience has shown that students living and studying in the Netherlands for (at least) one year spend between € 800,- and € 1.100,- per month.
