Exemption from payment

For example when you have a second enrolment elsewhere or when you are an exchange student or you receive a TU Delft-approved scholarship.

There are four ways in which you can be exempt from directly paying your tuition fee at TU Delft.

1. Second enrolment or minor student 

When you have an enrolment at one of the 3TU degree programmes at TU Eindhoven, University Twente or TU Delft,  a registration at the other universities will be made automatically. 

For the following study programmes at TU Delft, there are different procedures for registration and payment of tuition fee: 

  • BSc Nanobiology: register in Studielink an pay tuition fee at TU Delft
  • BSc Clinical Technology: register in Studielink an pay tuition fee at TU Delft
  • BSc Life Science and Technology: register in Studielink an pay tuition fee at TU Delft

  • MSc Industrial Ecology: register in Studielink an pay tuition fee at Leiden University

For the abovementioned programmes an automatically exchange of payment will take place. You do not have to hand in a proof of payment of tuition fee.

2. Certificate payment tuition fees 

Are you enrolled at another institution of higher education (hbo or university) and do you also wish to be enrolled at the TU Delft? Hand in your original certificate (Bewijs Betaald Collegeld) at the Contact Centre showing that you have paid the statutory tuition fee. You can obtain this certificate at your current institution.

3. Exchange students

Students from a foreign university who enrol at TU Delft as part of an international exchange programme are enrolled for a maximum of 12 months. These students are exempted from payment of tuition fee at TU Delft. Do you wish to stay longer than 12 months in order to complete the Master’s degree programme? Then you are subject to the standard regulations regarding tuition fee, per the start of the 13th month of enrolment. Fees required from exchange students for visa and/or housing should be received by bank transfer before the deadline.

4. Scholarship

If you are granted a TU Delft-approved full scholarship which exempts you for paying the tuition fee yourself, you can ignore your payment details in Studielink.
