Second-degree tuition fees - Exceptions

If you have already been awarded a degree in the Netherlands (except if you are going to take a degree for the first time in the field of health care or a teaching qualification) then you will pay the institutional rate.

This does not apply if the degree was awarded before 1 September 1991.

Students who follow a second Bachelor's or Master's programme in the educational field and who did not already receive a degree in the educational field or in the field of the health sciences and students who follow a second Bachelor's or Master's programme in the field of health sciences and who did not already receive a degree in the field of health sciences or in the educational field, can pay the statutory tuition fee*.

If you are following a second (different) degree programme alongside your first Bachelor's programme

If you are enrolled in two degree programmes at the same time and have/will you complete one of them, then you can follow the second parallel degree programme for the statutory tuition fee. This is under the condition that you follow the study programme without interruption.

Please note: specialisations can fall under the same degree study programme. In that case, both of the study programmes have the same ISAT code (according to the CROHO-register) and therefore don’t count as two separate study programmes. If that's the case, when you continue with one of the programmes after finishing the other one, you have to pay the (higher) institutional tuition fee. You can check whether this applies to the programmes you wish to study by comparing the ISAT-codes of the programmes on this website of DUO.

* The field of health sciences consists of, amongst others, the programmes of Medicine, Dentistry, Biomedical Sciences, Health Sciences, Movement Sciences, Health and Life Sciences.
