The costs associated with the study programmes depend on the department you are studying. During the Basicyear the study costs are lower than the costs in later years. Allow for at least €800-€1100 additional costs per year for materials and excursions , in addition to the annual fees. The Minister of Education granted the Rietveld Academie the distinctive feature of 'small-scale and intensive education'. This means we are allowed to ask for higher tuition fees in order to keep the education small-scale and intensive.
