UCM Tuition fee waiver

At UCM, we do not want finances preventing talented students from becoming part of our academic community. We recognise that some applicants from EU/EEA countries may be unable to pay the UCM tuition fee, which is higher than the national tuition fee set by the Dutch government. We therefore offer a tuition fee waiver for these applicants to cover the difference between the two fees.

Who is eligible?

All candidates must meet the following requirements:

  • You are applying for the Liberal Arts & Sciences programme of UCM
  • You hold an EU/EEA passport
  • You do not have personal funds available
  • You do not have parents or guardians who are able to support you financially
  • You do not have access to maintenance grants
  • You do not have access to subsidised loans

Duration of the UCM Tuition fee waiver

The UCM Tuition fee waiver is awarded for the duration of the Bachelor’s programme, with a maximum of 36 months.

Amount of the UCM Tuition fee waiver 2021/22

The Tuition fee waiver covers the difference between the UCM tuition fee and the national tuition fee set by the Dutch government. 

Application deadline
The deadline for applications is 1 March 2021.


Application procedure

Step 1: Register for the Bachelor’s programme Liberal Arts & Sciences at UCM via Studielink
