Everyone enrolled in Dutch MBO-BOL (school-based secondary vocational education) or full-time VAVO (secondary education for adults) and aged 18 or over on 1 August, must pay course fees. This does not apply to regular secondary education and private VAVO programmes.

Payment in instalments possible

The course fees for the 2021-2022 academic year are €608. In 2020-2021, they were €1,202. Payment is through Mijn DUO. You can pay the full amount all at once or in 9 instalments.

Course fees are invoiced around the middle of September. Upon receiving the invoice, you can choose how to pay. If you enrol later on in the academic year, you’ll be invoiced later.

Did you pay the 2020-2021 course fees in 9 instalments from your own bank account? Then you will automatically pay the 2021-2022 fees in instalments as well. You don't need to take any action for this. You will receive a notice about your instalments around the middle of September.

Disenrolled or enrolled later?

Course fees are calculated on the basis of your enrolment. If you started later on in the academic year, you may be charged lower course fees. If you terminated your enrolment early, you may be eligible for a refund.
