Do you need to learn Dutch for your future career? Are you going to study or do an internship in the Netherlands? Or would you simply like to make yourself understood during your next trip? The Language & Training Centre (LTC) will help you get there! Please take a look at our full range of Dutch for participants with an academic background (hbo/university).

Language courses start in September, January and April. 

You cannot pay for our courses with a DUO.

Please note: would you like to start a non-beginners course? You have to take an intake first!

If you plan to register for a non-beginners language course, you will first need to do an intake to determine your level. This short, oral intake is designed to determine your course advice. This test costs €5,- and the result can only be used to register for a Dutch course. If you need a level statement, you need to do a language assessment.

Registration deadlines are 25 February and 10 March

A language assessment Dutch is an extensive test that covers all language skills: reading, listening, writing and speaking and will determine your language proficiency. When all results have been processed, you will be given a statement with your current level of both your oral and written skills.
