Living costs & other expenses

Here you'll find an overview of what you can expect to spend on your Bachelor’s programme (besides the tuition fees).

Study materials 

You can expect to spend a total of around € 800 on books, handouts and other materials.

Your first year costs are usually higher, as you’re buying the books you’ll need for the whole programme. You’ll probably spend around € 75 on materials in the first few weeks. 

Costs of living 

A typical student spends € 500 to € 600 per month on living costs. If you need help finding accommodation, student housing organization DUWO can help you once you are enrolled. Go to the DUWO website for more information. 

Don’t forget to take any costs of living abroad (like phoning home) into account. 

Getting financial help 

Some students qualify for extra financial support, like a loan on interest. On rare occasions, non-Dutch students qualify for a study grant. To find out more about your options, you can go to the DUO website or call DUO Info Line (+31 50 599 77 55, on week days between 9am and 5pm).
