Tuition fees

In this section you will find all the information regarding the tuition fees.

Unfold each section for detailed specifications for each master’s programme, such as the price per credit or the deadline to pay the tuition fees.

Tuition fees are the same for EU and non-EU students.

Master's in International Development

Master's in International Relations

Master's in International Security

Tuition fees

The price per credit is €190, and the minimum requirement to obtain a master's degree is 60 ECTS credits. The tuition fee for 60 ECTS credits is therefore €11,400. The price of the complete tuition fee depends on the number of credits enrolled by the student, as students will have to pay for all extra credits exceeding the required 60 ECTS.

Once you have been offered a place in the master's programme of your choice, you will be asked to confirm your attendance by paying a non-refundable deposit of €1,000, which will later be deducted from your tuition fees.

Tuition fees are the same for EU and non-EU students.

  • New students enrolling for the complete two-year programme (120 ECTS) will benefit from a 25% discount for the second year of their studies, which means that the total tuition fees will be €19,950 (120 ECTS).
  • New students who have already successfully completed a master's degree at another university and who can therefore apply for the recognition of some or all of the credits completed during this first master's programme. The price per credit for those credits which were not recognised and will count towards the first year of the Research Master’s in International Studies is €190. During their second year of studies, students benefit from a 25% discount for a maximum of 60 ECTS.
  • IBEI alumni enrolling for the second year of the Research Master’s in International Studies will pay €135/ECTS for all required credits (70 ECTS), which means that the total tuition fees for the second year of the programme will be €9,450 (70 ECTS).
