I have been told it is expensive to follow a second degree programme. Is this true?

This depends on whether you fall into the statutory tuition fee category, or the institutional tuition fee category. You can find this in the section on 'Second Dutch degree programmes' on our tuition fee website.

The best option is usually to start a second study programme before completing the first one. In general, if you complete your first programme at Leiden University and want to follow a second programme at Leiden University, the tuition fees for the second programme will also be the normal rate on the condition that the two programmes directly follow one another. For instance, if you complete programme A in 2016/2017 and start programme B in 2017/2018.
