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.

You will need a laptop for projects and self-study. It is up to you which operating system you choose. Windows and Mac are both fine.


On average, books cost between €500 and €750 per year. You can receive a discount on the books via the VvTP study association. You can also purchase second-hand copies of the books, or borrow them from the faculty or university library.
