International students starting a Bachelor's or a Master's programme in 2012 will pay 12,020 euros in tuition fees.
That is 1500 euros more than first year foreign students currently pay. For their second year there will probably be an additional 300 euros to pay, a decision by the executive board suggests. According to spokesperson Simon Vink, the raise of 15 percent is part of the agreement to gradually make tuition fees cost-covering. There was a big hike in the fees last year too.
