Tuition fees for the Master’s in Latin American Studies differ from the regular UvA tuition fees. The tuition fees amount to a total of €3000 per academic year and are applicable to all students (independent of nationality). Students who successfully complete the first 30 ECTS before 1 February can apply to CEDLA for a research grant of up to €1000 to cover costs made during their research in Latin America.
Students are responsible for the cost of purchasing textbooks and/or copying materials and additional costs associated with their fieldwork in Latin America.
Depending on their personal status, students participating in the Master’s in Latin American Studies may be eligible for a student travel card (valid on public transport) and/or a loan from DUO. However, as the programme is a post-initial Master’s programme, different rules may apply regarding this eligibility than in the case of a regular Master’s programme. We recommend that students contact DUO to inform about the specifics.
If you are a non-European student of this Master's in Latin American Studies, you may be eligible for a NUFFIC scholarship via their Orange Knowledge Programme, which would cover (most of) the costs of your studies.
The Orange Knowledge Programme (OKP) is available for professionals who have the nationality of one of the the 51 OKP countries (PDF) and also live and work there. This scholarship entails the coverage of your tuition fee, (part of) your travel expenses to the Netherlands and back, your health insurance, a monthly allowance, and a one-time allowance for study materials.
We encourage all applicants from these countries to send us their full Master’s Latin American Studies application before 1 February. Applicants who send in their application after this date can still apply for the Master’s Programme, but will not be eligible for NUFFIC funding.
