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 the start of the 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 travelling 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 course. Applicants for the MSc, Master, Postgraduate or Diploma course can pay their tuition expenses in two instalment periods. The payment table in these cases is as follows:
