Participation fees

The participation fee for local and international participants is € 425,- (excl. 21% VAT).

The programme fee includes: accommodation in The Netherlands, field trips, social activities, workshops, working locations, supervision, some of the meals and the Finals and Awarding ceremony. The participants is also part of the integrated Future Water Leaders programme of the AIWW. The participant fee excludes the international and local travel (plain, train, bus, etc.) and all other daily costs not included in the program fee.

Note: The Wetskills organisation is striving to find possibilities to keep the costs to the participants at a minimum. During past editions participants often successfully arranged financial compensation for their Wetskills participation from their university or employer. We therefore strongly encourage applicants to inquire about funding opportunities to compensate the costs (university mobility funds, travel allowance etc.).

Study points

Several universities provide Studie Points to joining a Wetskills programme. It differs per institute how you can apply for this (sometimes with an extra assignment or as part of an internship) and how much points you will get. Ask your professor or study manager about the possibilities. Wetskills Foundation cannot provide Study Points itself, but can only provide assistance.
