Apart from the legally determined tuition/course fees, you will have to take into account additional costs for learning materials and perhaps some extras.

Learning materials
For most courses, you will need books. A laptop might also be a specific requirement.
Depending on your course, you might also need special software or clothing. 

All curriculums are designed to help you enter the labour market as well prepared as possible. This may mean that we organise field trips or master classes for which you will have to pay an additional charge. We also believe it is important for you to buy your own tools or devices so that you can practise after school hours.  
We keep the costs as low as possible without compromising quality. Any additional costs are determined in consultation with the student representative board. If the costs are a problem and you need help, there are several forms of financial support.
