Study materials and excursions
The costs for study books, etc differ per Bachelor programme. Check the information on the amount of costs with the programme of your choice.
Rent and living expenses
You can expect to spend between 800 euros and 1100 euros per month on living expenses in the Netherlands. The expenses include food, public transportation, housing and insurance. Please be aware that the tuition fee is not included in this amount.
One third of these expenses will go to the rent of your room. The rent of a room varies between 300 euro – 600 euro per month. Another third of your income will go to food. You can eat in pubs, but the cheapest way is to cook yourself or together with roommates. The remaining third of your expenses will go towards insurances, travel and leisure.
