Mind: Fees and additional costs for courses starting in 2012 can be subject to change.
* Additional costs
Additional costs cover books and lecture materials, fieldwork, vaccination (for fieldwork), registration fees, residence permit and visa. Costs for these items are charged as a lump sum. The cost of the residence permit is set by the Dutch Government and is subject to periodic increase. If this occurs the extra cost will have to be passed on to the student. Medical insurance, living allowance and accommodation are not included. For more details, see the ITC website and the general conditions for ITC courses.
** Insurance cover
All course participants travelling to ITC are required by law to hold full medical insurance.
The visas and residence permits required to travel to the Netherlands will not be issued unless insurance cover can be shown to the embassy.
ITC generally arranges a comprehensive insurance cover in advance of arrival at the rates shown above.
Participants (generally from European Union countries) holding their own medical insurance and not requiring additional cover need not purchase this additional cover.
*** Tuition fee for Distance education
€ 1,000: participants who reside in, or are nationals of, a non-ODA country.
€ 500: participants who reside in, and are nationals of an ODA country (see the countries on the OECD approved List of Recipients of Official Development Assistance).
Accommodation and living costs
Accommodation and living costs in the Netherlands are estimated at a minimum of € 875 per month. For instance, participants funded by the Dutch government (NFP fellowship) receive € 970 per month for accommodation and living costs.
The figures shown in the table above are approximate values based on the nominal course duration and the minimum monthly living allowance.
The rates are calculated on a daily basis of approximately € 29. The accommodation cost of approximately € 14.80 has to be paid out of this sum.
A more accurate indication of the sum required will be given on a formal invoice and will be based on the period of stay and the minimum monthly living allowance rate in effect at the time.
The tuition fee, additional costs and health insurance premium are to be fully paid in advance to cover the total duration of the course. The general conditions for ITC courses apply.
If the individual study period has to be extended, an additional payment must be made before the extension period begins.
