Statutory tuition and institutional tuition

Your type of tuition (in Dutch) depends on your situation. You pay statutory tuition if you meet the set conditions. For instance, if you attend a state-funded college or university.

If you do not meet the conditions for statutory tuition, such as because you attend a private academic institution, you must pay institutional tuition.
