Dutch assessment

A language assessment determines your language proficiency. You can use the test results to, for example, show your faculty that you meet the language requirements needed for an exchange programme or to apply to a Master’s programme. You can also use the results of this assessment to prove your actual language proficiency to your employer.

What to expect?

This assessment consists of an oral test of 15 minutes and a written test of 1 hour. After processing your results, you will receive a level statement indicating your proficiency according to the levels of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). A distinction between your oral and written skills will be made.

If the assessment shows that you do not meet the required level yet, you can use the test results to register for a Dutch language course.

How to register

The LTC only organises assessments on demand and only during the months September-June of an academic year. An assessment costs € 85, - and is valid for a period of one year. After all, your language proficiency might have improved or deteriorated.

If you would like to register for an assessment, please send your request to ltc@eur.nl.
