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

The minimum amount you will require for accommodation and living is approximately € 900 a month. The Dutch Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) requires that ITC guarantees on behalf of the applicant that s/he has adequate funding to cover accommodation and living costs. All applicants must, therefore, provide evidence of funds by covering full payment of accommodation and living costs prior to the start of the course. Read detailed information on the page IND webpages Study.

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 Master's or Postgraduate course may request the facility to pay their total expenses (i.e. the full amounts shown on the invoice, comprising, tuition fee, living allowances, insurance and residence permit fee) in two equal annual instalments. This facility does NOT apply to those in receipt of a scholarship administered by the University of Twente.

The payment table in these cases is as follows:

Programme

Payment 1

Due date

Payment 2

Failure to pay the fee instalment by the stated deadline will be considered grounds for non-registration for the forthcoming academic year.

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 the 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.
