Application fee for international students

Graduate School of Humanities

All applicants holding a nationality outside the EU are required to pay an application fee of €50. A receipt of the transfer needs to be uploaded onto your personal page with the rest of your application before the application deadline.

How to transfer the application fee

You can (only) transfer the application fee by bank transfer. Make sure your name, the programme(s) you are applying for and the following code: R.2017.0036 are clearly stated. This makes it possible for us to trace the payment back to your application. Payments should be made in Euros, free of charges to the beneficiary.
