The costs for bachelor's education for academic year 2024/2025 are €135 per credit. For master's courses the costs are € 175,- per study point. After registration, you will receive an invoice for the courses you wish to take. It is not possible to pay in instalments. The costs include participation in lectures, supervision by a lecturer, taking an examination, partial examinations or re-examinations leading to a single final result and receipt of a participation certificate in the event of a positive result.

The contract applies to the academic year in which the course is offered. If a contracting party wishes to resit the course in a new year in order to achieve a satisfactory final result, a new contract and associated costs must be drawn up. Cancellations can be made in writing up to 10 working days before the start of the course at the latest. After this, the full course fee is due. In case of timely cancellation, a 50 euro administration fee will be charged.

Free study credit for alumni

Students receive a study credit of 18 EC when graduating from Radboud University which gives free access to taking a course. As an alumnus you ‘pay’ with this free study credit, you apply for it at Alumni Relations. In case of cancellation, a 50 euro administration fee will be charged.
