1 Tuition fee
The tuition fee includes all expenses necessary to offer our students a comprehensive educational experience from start to end of selected course. These include registration fees, course materials, course excursions and access to research data and equipment. Fieldwork is paid out of general means as well as student personal funds, and varies per course and research theme.

2 Tuition fee for Distance education
If you reside in, and are a national of a country listed on the OECD approved List of Recipients of Official Development Assistance you pay the lower tuition fee.

Additional costs

Residence permit
The cost of the residence permit is set by the Dutch Government and is subject to periodic increases. ITC applies on the applicants’ behalf for the residence permit, therefore the applicant is invoiced for this amount in advance.

Cost of living allowance
Dutch Immigration Service (IND) provides an estimate of monthly accommodation and living costs in the Netherlands. IND requires that ITC guarantees on behalf of the applicant that s/he has adequate funding to cover accommodation and living cost. All applicants must therefore provide evidence of funds by covering full payment of accommodation and living costs prior to start of course.

The living allowance has to be paid in advance, after which students receive a refund upon arrival. This refund is after deduction of hotel accommodation expenses and can be used for food and out-of-pocket expenses. It is paid out either on a monthly basis or per course module, depending on the type of course you have registered for.

Insurance
All course participants traveling to ITC are required by law to hold full medical insurance. The short stay visa to travel to the Netherlands will not be issued unless insurance cover can be shown to the embassy. ITC arranges a comprehensive insurance cover in advance of arrival at the rates shown above.

Applicants who are European Union citizens holding their own medical insurance must be able to provide evidence of comparable insurance. If provided and approved by ITC, these students are exempt from purchasing insurance through ITC.

Payment conditions

The tuition fee and additional costs are to be fully paid in advance to cover the total duration of the cost. Applicants for the MSc, Master, Postgraduate or Diploma course can pay their tuition expenses in two installment periods. The payment table in these cases is as follows:

Programme Payment 1 Due date Payment 2 Due date
MSc degree 50% of tuition 1 June 50% of tuition 1 May
Master degree 50% of tuition 1 June 50% of tuition 1 February
Postgraduate diploma 50% of tuition 1 June 50% of tuition 1 February
Diploma 50% of tuition 1 October 50% of tuition 1 May

 

Extension of study
If the individual study period has to be extended, additional payments must be made before the extension period begins.

Joint Educational Programmes
Students enrolling for a course under auspices of a Joint Education Programme (JEP) are charged tuition and additional costs on basis of the institutional agreement. For details we refer you to your home institution.
