Pre-master programmes

For a pre-master programme you pay a compensation for a variant.

Fees academic year 2019-2020

Pre-master programmes Compensation
15 EC € 521
30 EC € 1,041
45 EC € 1,562
60 EC € 2,083

Some faculties have pre-master programmes with a different workload. The compensation for these variants is being determined on the basis of the above programmes and proportionally added with € 35 per EC (rounded).

Two examples:

  • Compensation programme 20 EC = compensation programme 15 EC + 5 x € 35
  • Compensation programme 40 EC = compensation programme 30 EC + 10 x € 35


You pay your compensation in one go, or by staggered payments. If you pay in staggered payments, the payments will continue until the full amount has been paid.

It is only possible to choose the amount of € 2,060 in Studielink. The fee will be revised to the actual number of ECTS as soon as the Faculty issued the Statement Admission Pre-Master programme (VTP).

No reimbursement

You are not entitled to reimbursement if you deregister during the academic year, unless you have filed a request for deregistration via Studielink in the first three months of your enrollment.

Reimbursement amount

The amount is depending on the number of months you were enrolled at the University of Groningen.

Number of months you were enrolled Amount
1 month amount you have paid minus 1/12 van € 2.060,-
2 months amount you have paid minus 2/12 van € 2.060,-
3 months amount you have paid minus 3/12 van € 2.060,-
longer than 3 months you are not entitled to reimbursement

Please contact the student counsellors of the Student Service Centre if you want to deregister after more than 3 months due to extraordinary circumstances such as illness.
