Admissions

Tuition and education fees at International School Twente

IST is officially recognised by the Dutch Ministry of Education, which contributes funds to the school. These government funds cover approximately half of the actual costs. Parents are therefore required to pay school fees, which are charged annually in advance, to cover all other remaining expenses. Please note that annual school fees are tuition fees and not a voluntary ‘ouderbijdrage’ as applicable in Dutch schools.


The school publishes Standard Terms and Conditions concerning the payment of the fees. These are issued to all parents through the school guide, and can also be found on our website. Parents enter into a contract with the school on agreeing to the Standard Terms & Conditions when signing the Admission Recording Form. The school fees for both primary and secondary can be found below:

 

School Level Primary* Secondary (Year 7-11)** Secondary (Year 12-13)**
School Fee per year 4,500 6,800 7,300

All school fees are in EUR.

* Fee includes books. Extracurricular activities and school trips are not included.
**  IGCSE, AS and DP exams as well as checkpoint tests costs are not included in this table.

There are two options for school fee payment:

  1. School fee payment by invoice (either addressed to employer or to parent). Invoices will be sent through email by the end of July.
  2. School fee payment in 8 installments, according to the table below.
