Students working together in a booth

Our fee-structure consists out of 4 parts. These 4 parts together make our total package fee, which is an amount covering all study costs. Living expenses are not included in the total package fee.

The fee-structure consists of:

  • Tuition Fee: the costs of the course, you can find the tuition fee for each programme on the programme details pages;
  • Housing: in the first year you are obliged to rent the accommodation Saxion arrange for you;
  • Visa & Residence Permit: Saxion takes care of the procedures necessary for you to come to the Netherlands;
  • Insurance.

Package fee amounts

For each type of study programme (bachelor or master) or course you will have to pay a different amount, which also depends on your country of origin. More information about the exact amounts for the upcoming academic year can be found on the programme detail pages.

How to pay your tuition fees

Non-European students that start their studies at Saxion for the first time have to pay the tuition fees at once.

Re-enrolling non-European as well as all European students can also choose to pay in instalments. You can indicate this in Studielink, where you have the possibility to an authorisation for a one-off direct debit of the tuition fees every year.

For more information see: Payment options.

Deposit for housing

All students whose housing is arranged by Saxion are required to pay a housing deposit of € 500,-. This deposit is to cover damage to the property, or cleaning costs after students leave. It is also used to cover excessive heating and electricity bills.

At the end of the academic year, students can receive part of the deposit or the complete deposit back, after a thorough inspection of the room and the house. All students living in one house or flat will be jointly responsible for energy consumption.

Some programmes require an extra amount for books.
