A number of Universities of Applied Sciences, including Hotelschool The Hague, are allowed to charge higher tuition fees on the grounds of demonstrable added value for students.

Hotelschool The Hague demonstrates its added value through the following points:

Application & Selection

Study choice activities
A new Dutch law 'Kwaliteit in verscheidenheid' is coming into force stating that new students have to register for their studies before 1 May. If you register before 1 May you have the right to participate in study choice activities which will help you to decide which programme is best for you. This rule doesn't apply for universities with selection. Hotelschool The Hague uses selection days to select new students and is therefore excluded from this rule.

Would you like to start in August 2015? EEA students can apply until 1 May 2015.
