Payment methods  

Select one of the following payment methods :

Digital authorisation

This is only possible when you have a DigiD and transfer the money from a bank in one of the SEPA-countries

The TU Delft advises you to arrange the payment through the digital authorisation in Studielink. After logging in with your DigiD, you fill in your payment details in Studielink. Afterwards you receive a message from Studielink to confirm the digital authorisation.  

When somebody else is paying through debit authorisation, please notify this in Studielink. In that case the other person has to confirm the digital authorisation with his/her DigiD.  

The moment at which the TU Delft receives the digital authorisation, is the moment that your payment obligations are deemed fulfilled. When the enrolment is completed before the 11th of the month, then the tuition fee will be debited in the same month. 

Please beware: after October 1st it is not possible to pay your tuition fee for that academic year per digital authorisation. Instead, use this form for payment of your tuition fee. 
 

Account conditions

In order to pay through the digital authorisation, you need to have a bank account (not a saving account) registered within one of the countries of the European Union, including Norway, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Switzerland and Monaco.  

Changes to the account number that submit less than 10 days before the debit date can no longer be processed in time. In that case the debit will take place from the former account number. 

Collection by instalments 

The digital debit authorisation enables you to pay the tuition fees in 12 monthly instalments. The first collection date will be around 23 September and the last collection date around 23 August.  

If you pay in instalments, an administration fee of € 24 will be charged. This surcharge is debited together with the first instalment. If you reconsider your method of payment after collection of the first instalment (including the surcharge) and then pay the remaining tuition fees in one go, you are still required to pay the surcharge. You can start payment by instalments throughout the entire academic year. 

Penalty clause 

If collection of the tuition fee, examination fee of costs for Bridging Programme is not possible in a particular month due to insufficient balance or a freeze on the account, then the student is informed with a payment reminder. See the website for more information about Conditions and penalty clause

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 the 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 Applied Mathematics: register in Studielink an pay tuition fee at Leiden University or TU Delft
  • 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
  • BSc Molecular Sciences & Technology: register in Studielink an pay tuition fee at Leiden University
  • 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) 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.

Second degree programme 

For academic years 2015/2016 and 2016/2017, TU Delft does not charge any additional fees for a second degree programme after finishing a similar grade.

Scholarships

Students admitted to a TU Delft MSc programme with exceptional promise and outstanding academic achievement are eligible to a number of scholarships. These scholarships are handed out by the university, specific faculties, departments and industry partners.
