*Please note that different fees apply for University College Groningen programmes, Erasmus Mundus programmes and other Double Degree programmes.

Tuition waiver for exchange students

Students participating in the LLLP Erasmus*, Tempus or ISEP programme do not have to pay tuition fees. Students coming to the Netherlands to study within one of the formal inter-university exchange programmes of the University of Groningen are also exempted from paying tuition fees. The Netherlands has many cultural agreements with foreign countries. If you receive a grant from the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science within the framework of one of these agreements to study in Groningen, there may be a (partial) tuition waiver.

*N.B. Erasmus Mundus programmes are not part of LLLP Erasmus. Therefore, students participating in Erasmus Mundus programmes do need to pay tuition fees.

Funding opportunities

Several scholarships are available for international students who are motivated to study Bachelor’s, Master’s and PhD programmes, as well as for exchanges, short courses and research stays at our university.  

Please note: the University of Groningen no longer participates in the US Student Loans (FAFSA) by the Department of Education of the US Government.
