The tuition fees indicator helps you to determine the tuition rate for your situation. The information and tuition rates from this indicator are without engagement.
A distinction is made between statutory tuition fees and institutional tuition fees. Only if you satisfy all statutory requirements regarding your nationality and if you have not yet been awarded a degree, will you be eligible for statutory tuition fees. Via the tuition fees indicator, you can secure an indication of the type of tuition fees that will be applicable in your situation. To do so, please make use of the indicator above.
Distinctions are made between the following types of Institutional Tuition Fees:
Please ensure that you have arranged the payment of your Tuition Fees prior to commencing your course programme(s). If you fail to do so, your (re-) enrolment will not be finalised and you will not be permitted to follow your chosen course programme(s). Please also note that if you are not enrolled, you will not be entitled to receive any student grants and/or loans.
If you have a Bank account number, of which the bank is situated in one of the SEPA countries, the only way to pay for the tuition fee is via a digital authorisation. Therefore you first need to enter your payment details in Studielink. In the section ‘My To Do List’ you will thereafter receive a message from Studielink requesting you to confirm your digital authorisation. After you have done this, the payment of your tuition fee is completed. It is only possible to confirm your digital authorisation after your personal details have been verified via Studielink or Fontys. After you log in via DigiD this check will take place.
If a third party (e.g. your father or your mother, but not your employer) is to pay your Tuition Fees on your behalf, you will be issued with an activation code via e-mail after having submitted your payment details. You should then forward this e-mail to the relevant third party, who will then need to confirm the digital authorisation by logging in to Studielink using their own Dutch DigiD (Digital Identification). The digital authorisation process will be complete upon your receipt of an e-mail verifying that your digital authorisation has been confirmed. If said party does not have a DigiD, this party cannot pay your tuition fees.
If you have a Bank account number, of which the bank is not situated in one of the SEPA countries, but you have the nationality of one of the countries included in the EEA*, you will not be able to pay the tuition fee via a digital authorisation, but you will receive a payment agreement from Fontys. This payment agreement will be send to your Fontys e-mail address and the e-mail address you indicated in Studielink. Please duly complete and sign this payment agreement before the start of your studies and send it to us by post. You will find the address at the bottom of the payment agreement.
It is also possible to scan the completed and signed payment agreement and send it by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please only use this e-mail address for sending the payment agreement and not for sending other enrolment related documents or questions.
If you have a Bank account number, of which the bank is not situated in one of the SEPA countries, and you are a national of a country outside the EEA without an address in The Netherlands, then you will receive a paymentletter from Fontys via your course department.
Until you have confirmed your digital authorisation, you may change your payment details. In Studielink , go to the option "My study programmes" and then click on the course programme for which you wish to change the payment details. Click on the option "Change payment details". You can then submit the correct details. Do not forget to click on the button "Confirm".
If a third party is paying your Tuition Fees on your behalf, he/she/they may submit any required changes to the bank account number, the account holder’s name and the payment address prior to confirming such details, both if paying in a single debit, or in instalments.
Once the digital authorisation has been confirmed, this may no longer be changed via Studielink. Should it be necessary to make any changes at a later time, please contact your course department.
In Studielink, you can click on the option "Question and Answer page" in the Help screen at the right. Click on the category "Payment method – Digital authorisation", here you will find answers to the most frequently asked questions.
If you cannot find the answer to your question via Q&A, you will need to contact your course department. To be issued with a proof of payment document regarding your Tuition Fees (if you have enrolled in a course programme at Fontys and you have enrolled in a second course programme at another institute), you will also need to contact your course department.
If your employer is prepared to pay your Tuition Fees, you will need to confirm the digital authorisation yourself in Studielink, using your own bank account number. In order to then claim reimbursement of these costs from your employer, you may request a proof of payment document from your Course Department. You may then submit this document with your claim for reimbursement to your employer. Fontys does not issue invoices to employers. If this is not sufficient for your employer, please contact your course department.
If your Tuition Fees are to be paid on your behalf of UAF (The Foundation for Refugee Students), you must not submit a digital authorisation in Studielink. In this case, the payment will be arranged directly by the foundation.
Collection will take place in a maximum of ten equal instalments on or around the 26th of the month. Depending upon the processing time required after your enrolment, the direct debit may need to be moved to the following month. If so, the amount outstanding will then be divided and added to the remaining instalments to be executed until and including the June instalment.
Please note: In relation to the paying in instalments facility, an Administration Fee per Academic Year will be payable. This fee will be debited to your account together with the first instalment payable.
If you commence your studies on 1 September, the direct debit pertaining to your Tuition Fees will be executed on or around 25 September. If you commence your studies after 1 September, the direct debit will be executed on or around the 26th of the month in which you commence your studies.
Please note:If you have submitted your ‘Request for Enrolment’ after the date upon which the last direct debit was to be executed (i.e. on or around 25 June), payment of the full sum in a single payment will be the only option possible.
In all cases (i.e. paying in instalments or in a single payment), prior to the execution of each direct debit, you will be sent a message in which you will be advised of the exact date upon which the direct debit is to be executed.
If the whole amount, or an instalment (only possible when paying via a digital authorisation), cannot be directly debited, a Payment Reminder will be sent to you.
If payment is still not made within the specified term, a payment demand will follow. If the payment demand relates to tuition fees, and payment is still not made within 14 days following the date of the payment demand, Fontys will terminate your registration by the second month following the date of the payment demand. When you receive this payment demand, your Fontys account will be blocked simultaniously. As soon as Fontys has received your payment, your account will be accessible within a few working days.
