Limited number of grants as of 2009
6 maart 2008 - Universities and ‘hogescholen’ will as of 1 January 2009 be funded no longer for international students. Instead they will receive a limited number of ‘knowledge grants’, which they can portion out at their discretion. The Ministry of Education, Culture and Science (OCW) has not yet announced the definitive arrangement for grants.

Like the other universities of technology in Delft and Enschede, the TU/e has anticipated this change in funding. Several years ago the TU/e was already allowed to increase the tuition and fees for students from non-EEA countries, which it did. Roughly the same tariffs apply in Delft, Twente and Eindhoven.

For the determination of the tuition and fees a distinction is made between students within and outside the European Economic Area (European Union plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). The lower EEA tariffs apply also to students with the Surinam nationality and non-EEA students who are supported by the UAF or who receive a Dutch study grant.

For the current academic year 2007-2008 most students from countries within the EEA pay 1,538 Euros. Apart from EEA students of the dual Master program Chemical Engineering, who pay 5,050 Euros. For incumbent students of this dual program the university has made transitional arrangements under which they pay a reduced tariff until 2009, and until 2011 at the latest for those who started in 2006-2007.

Bachelor students from outside the EEA pay 5,000 Euros. ‘Schakel’ students and Master students pay 8,310 Euros. For these groups, too, the lower transitional tariffs will lapse in the academic year 2008-2009 and in some cases in 2011 at the latest.

Students receiving a Talent Program Scholarship can use this to pay their tuition and fees among other things. The scholarship program is accessible to international talented students within and outside the European Union./.
