Once you have been admitted you will receive a bank statement from the Saxion Financial Department. Please fill this form in and return it to us. The Financial Department will promptly review it and, if approved, will send you an invoice for the programme you have been admitted to. We will provide detailed instructions on how to process the statement within the document itself.

Regular questions

As a first year non-EU/EEA student, you cannot pay in instalments but you need to pay for the whole year directly. From the second year on, you will be able to pay in instalments with a Dutch bank account.

As an EU/EEA student ou can choose if you want to pay in instalments or pay for the whole year directly.

Saxion works with ten instalments. If you are able to pay in instalments*, the tuition fees are collected around the 25th of each month. Please make sure you have sufficient funds available in your bank account. 

For non-EU/EEA students with a residence permit, this has to be at least €850,- to be able to withdraw the institutional fee. For EU/EEA students, an amount of at least €250.- is required to be able to withdraw the statutory tuition fee. When you pay in instalments, you will be charged an annual handling fee of €24. 

In this overview you can see on what dates the tuition fees are collected for the academic year 2023-2024.

* The direct debit authorisation and/or authorisation for payment in instalments is valid for one academic year, and is only available for re-enrolling non-EU/EEA students with a Dutch bank account, and both starting and re-enrolling EU/EEA students.

Within the SEPA area

If you have a Dutch bank account, or a bank account within the SEPA area, you can issue a digital (direct debit) authorisation* through Studielink. As soon as you can enter your payment details, you will receive a message from Studielink that a new To Do activity is ready in your To Do list. 

In this manual, you can subsequently read how you can issue the digital (direct debit) authorisation.

Your authorisation must be submitted before the 1st of September  in order to start your studies at Saxion. If you have not met all registration conditions and terms of payment before the 1st of September, your enrolment at Saxion will be cancelled and you will not be able to start your studies at Saxion.

Outside the SEPA area (non-EU/EEA students)

If your bank is located outside the SEPA area, you do not have the required details (IBAN) to issue the authorisation through Studielink. If you are a first-year student and you received your acceptance letter from the International Office, you can pay the full amount with the invoice you received in this letter. If you are a re-enrolling student and only have a non-SEPA bank account, you can pay the tuition fees in full via bank transfer or issue a paper authorisation. You can pick up the form for doing so at the student desk.

If Saxion does not receive your payment in time, your enrolment is at risk. If we are forced to cancel your enrolment due to non-payment, you will also lose your right to a scholarship.

If the registered address of your bank is in the Netherlands, you will have the option in Studielink to appoint someone else to pay your tuition fees. 

In that case (or when an employer is going to pay your fees) you must issue the  authorisation  yourself through  Studielink and pay the tuition fees yourself. Subsequently, you can settle the payment with the other party.   

If you want to make a payment, always mention your student number in the payment.
