If you are going to study at Codarts, you have to pay tuition fees every year. There are two types of tuition fees in the Netherlands: the statutory tuition fee, which is determined each year by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW), or the institutional tuition fee, which is determined each year by Codarts.
The institutional tuition fee is higher than the statutory tuition fee. The reason is that for students who do not meet the conditions for the statutory tuition fee, Codarts does not receive any government funding. To compensate for this difference, Codarts charges the difference in tuition fees.
The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science determines the statutory tuition fee each year. This amount is the same for all educational institutions. To be eligible for the statutory tuition fee, you have to meet the following conditions.
You have the nationality of a country, which is part of the European Union (EU), Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Suriname or Switzerland. You also satisfy this condition if you are applicable for Dutch study finance because of your Dutch residence permit according to Section 2.2(1) of the Student Finance Act 2000 (Wet studiefinanciering 2000).
You have not obtained a degree from a Bachelor’s programme (or equivalent) in the Netherlands before you started your Bachelor programme at Codarts. Neither did you have a degree from a Master’s programme (or equivalent) in the Netherlands before you started your Master programme at Codarts. Exemption: you do not have to satisfy this condition if you enrol the first time for the programmes Bachelor of Music in Education, Bachelor of Dance in Education or Master of Education in Arts and your previous degree is not in the field of education of health.
If you do not meet the conditions above, the institutional tuition fee will apply.

The institutional tuition fees are determined each year by Codarts and are always higher than the statutory tuition fees. You have to pay institutional tuition fees if you do not meet the above conditions for statutory tuition fees. Or if you want to do a second bachelor's programme after your bachelor's and you obtained your degree after 1991.
