    Calculation of your tuition fee
    Text: 

    The tuition fee consists of a fixed amount and a variable amount:

    • the fixed amount is a fixed cost which is paid once per academic year
    • the variable amount is a specific amount per ECTS credit in your year programme.

    The tuition fee = the fixed amount + (the variable amount x the number of registered ECTS credits).

    The amount that you will pay for the fixed and the variable amount depends, among other things, on:

    • the programme you enrol in;
    • your nationality (EEA or non-EEA);
    • the number of ECTS credits that you register for;
    • whether or not you are a scholarship student;
    • the type of contract you have: a credit, exam or diploma contract

    Example tuition fee calculation (2018-2019)

    A non-EEA student who enrols for the Master of Science in Management (incl. the preparatory programme of 18 credits) for 78 ECTS credits in total will need to pay € 3.400,00 with the calculation as follows: €1450,00 (fixed amount) + €25,00 (variable amount) * 78 ECTS.

    The rules that apply to the tuition fees, can be consulted in the Teaching and examination regulations 2018-2019 (see from article 'calculation of tuition fees').

    Consequences on tuition fees
    Text: 

    Reimbursement of (a part of) your tuition fee depends on the amount already paid and the time of termination:

    • Discontinuation up to and including 30 November:

         Reimbursement of the full tuition fee minus the fixed amount.

    • Discontinuation from 1 December until 15 March (included):

         Reimbursement of the tuition fee paid for second semester courses.

    • Discontinuation as of 16 March:

         The full tuition fee remains due to the VUB.

    Discontinuation of your studies does not release you from your financial obligations to the VUB. The tuition fee due at the time of terminating your studies remains payable and you will need to pay this.
