A student may pay from a minimum of about €3,600 (for lower family incomes and cheaper programs) to a maximum of about €8,900 (for higher family incomes and more expensive programs) per year.

For Non-European residents, a flat tuition fee is applied to international students residing outside the European Union and associated states. The full tuition fee amount is €8,540 per year.
