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.

Course books

In the first two years, your course books will cost approximately €600. In the third year, the cost depends on the electives you choose, but will be between €100 and €300. This is for new books – there are other cheaper alternatives. You can often buy your course books at a discount from the student associations. In addition, many books can be borrowed from the faculty or university library. The lecture notes and tutorials that will be helpful for you to buy for your studies are significantly cheaper.

Miscellaneous costs

  • Laboratory supplies via Hooke: €50.
  • Sapling software account for the Chemistry courses (€25).
