    Tuition Fee Per Year

    • EUR 17300 International
    • EUR 2006 EU/EEA


    ERIM offers a limited number of subsistence allowances to its very best applicants. The subsistence allowance amounts either € 5,000 or € 10,000 (which is sufficient to cover the living costs in the Netherlands for one year). If you would like to apply for this subsistence allowance, you have to submit a written scholarship application with the rest of your application package. Your scholarship application should include a motivation letter and a financial statement proving your need for financial support.

    ERIM also offers a reduced tuition fee to several excellent non-EEA students. This means that instead of paying a tuition fee of €17,000 per year, you would have to pay €1,984. The decision on granting the reduced fee is made after you’ve been accepted into the programme.

    StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
