Learning a new language is discovering a new world

Do you need to learn Dutch for your future career? Are you going to study in the Netherlands or doing an internship? 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/WO): 

Language test

  • Intake

    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 is free 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.
  • Assessment

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

Language course

 Per course period the LTC determines which courses are offered.

  • Online course (one-year licence for all levels)

    without final examination and without certificate.
  • Summer course (for beginners only)

    with final examination and certificate
