All applicants who (will) obtain a diploma that is not part of the Dutch education system (i.e. a Dutch VWO diploma, Dutch HBO or bachelor degree from a Dutch (research) university), must pay a handling fee of €100 upon submitting their application. This fee can be paid online using the Erasmus Payment System. This system offers applicants the possibility to pay using either iDEAL (for those with a Dutch bank account) or PayPal (which can be linked to any bank account or credit card worldwide). It is important that applicants complete the payment process as indicated, otherwise the system cannot register the payment. The fee is non-refundable. Applications without successful payment of the fee cannot be submitted and will therefore not be processed.

We strongly advise you not to submit your application at the last minute! Paying the handling fee is not always instant. Do not miss the deadline because your payment was not processed on time!
