Tuition Fees and Student Support in the EU

VU International News and Reviews No. 101 November 20 2017

November 2017

Eurydice publishes its annual report on National Student Fee and Support Systems in European Higher Education for 2016/17

This report on student fee and support systems in Europe provides a comparative overview of which students pay fees, how much they pay, and to what extent they receive financial support during their studies. Individual country sheets outline the main elements of national systems. While attention mostly focuses on the first and second cycle full-time students, it also shows data for short cycle students for the first time.
Information covers the 28 EU Member States as well as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Montenegro, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Norway, Serbia and Turkey.

The report gives specific information for each country, categorizing them in the most common categories of fee payment in first-cycle studies.

In most countries, fee policies in second cycle programmes are identical to those in the first cycle.
