How can I get a tuition fee refund once I have requested termination of my student registration?

Once you request termination of your student registration via Studielink, Leiden University will process your request as quickly as possible. If you are entitled to a tuition fee refund, you will be reimbursed two weeks after your registration has been formally terminated.

Be aware that if you end your student registration after 31 May, you are not entitled to a tuition fee refund! More information can be found on our website.

Please note that if you have been issued with a proof of tuition fee payment (Bewijs Betaald Collegegeld - BBC) for registration at another institution, you will only receive your tuition fee refund once you demonstrate that you are no longer using the BBC. You can do this by submitting proof of de-registration from the other institution to the Student Affairs Front Office.
