Study Costs

Studying costs money; there is no way around this. Apart from paying tuition fees and buying books, lecture notes and handbooks, you will have to allow for rent, insurance and shopping for your daily needs.

Tuition fees

Tuition fees are set each year in accordance with the law. Information about tuition fees can be found here.

Computer and software

TU Delft offers you a wide range of hardware and software, as well as granting you access to both the wired and the wireless network. The wired network is particularly useful if you are working with large files. Through the University’s laptop project you can buy a laptop at a discount and download a wide range of software at competitive prices.

Textbooks and other expenditure

You can purchase books for the degree programme In Civil Engineering from the VSSD Student Union. Many books are also available on loan from the university library. As well as textbooks, you will also need to buy lecture notes and manuals for your degree programme, although these are considerably cheaper.

Average expenditure for each year is approximately as follows:
1st year: €350
2nd year: €250
3rd year: €50 (excluding Minor)
+ around €50 in total for lecture notes.

Other costs that you can expect (approximately €15) include:

  • Drawing package, for use in the Bouwplaats part of the programme in the first year
