UCM/MSP Tuition fee waiver

  • Master
  • Tuition fee waiver

At University College Maastricht (UCM) and Maastricht Science Programme (MSP) , they do not want finances preventing talented students from becoming part of our academic community. They recognise that some applicants from EU/EEA countries may be unable to pay the UCM/MSP tuition fee, which is higher than the national tuition fee set by the Dutch government. They therefore offer a tuition fee waiver for these applicants to cover the difference between the two fees.
