Tuition Fee

Tuition Fee
The tuition fee you pay for an academic year depends on the type of study contract, the number of credits for which you are enrolled and your possible entitlement to a study grant from the Flemish Government.

The school fee is the same for non-EU students as it is for the EU students.
The study fees are always the same for premaster year and master year.
Without a study allowance, the basic tuition fee for academic year 2024-2025 is € 1092,1
for a diploma or credit contract of 60 credits.
The price can be cutdown to a fixed and variable fee:
You pay yearly a standard administration fee for enrolment: € 282,10
And per credit you pay:  € 13,50
For a standard year of 60 credits you pay thus: € 282,10 + (60 x  € 13,50) = € 1 092,1
If in the premaster you need to follow per year less than 60 credits you pay of less credits.
Possible school fieldtrips and materials are not included in the tuition fee.

Any additional costs are separate from the tuition fee.
- purchase of laptop
- purchase of study material
- rent of room
- transport costs
- leisure activities
