Tuition fees

You pay the statutory + tuition fee if you:

  • have the Dutch nationality or the nationality of another country that is part of the EEA, or the Surinamese or Swiss nationality and
  • have not already obtained a bachelor's degree from a government-funded programme in the Netherlands at the start of the academic year.

In the academic year 2018-2019 the statutory + fee is € 2,566.
Creative Business / International Media and Entertainment Management has a higher tuition fee than other NHTV bachelor programmes, because of the distinctive feature of Small-Scale Intensive Education.

In all other cases you pay the institution tuition fee. In the academic year 2018-2019 the institution fee is € 9,693.
