Education expenses 

There are a number of education expenses that all students will be liable for as appropriate. Such expenses may include field trip costs, books and printing.

Daily expenses

When you live in another country, you must take into account the costs of housing and insurance, but also daily expenses such as food, public transport, books and clothing. More information about the daily expenses in the Netherlands can be found on the website of Study in Holland

Dutch bank account

For students with EU/EEA or Swiss nationality who have a bank account in their home country, it is not strictly necessary to open a Dutch bank account. It is necessary to bring a credit card if you do not open a Dutch bank account. With a credit card you can pay at the university, something that is not possible with a non-Dutch debit card. We also advise you to open a pay pal account. For more information we advise you to contact your own bank. If you want to open a Dutch bank account you need: 

  • Valid identification
  • Proof of enrolment at the university
