The Language & Training Center offers language courses 3 times a year (October to December, January to March and April to June).
You can register for a course, intake, assessment or workshop via our webshop in Osiris. You can log in with your student ERNA or create one if you don't have one yet. Watch the video below for a detailed explanation of how to register via Osiris.
Please note: for an intake or assessment it is sometimes also required to make an appointment for a time slot. This can be done via the link on the intake / assessment page.
How to register
The courses that take place on Campus Woudestein or are offered online (via Zoom). Most classes take place in the evening.
Our courses are for students, employees and externals. We do ask you have an academic background (HBO/WO).
The groups consist of a maximum of 16 (campus) or 15 (online) participants. With less than 12 participants, LTC reserves the right to cancel a course.
The course is concluded with an exam. You will receive a certificate upon completion if you pass all exam components.
While following a course, you may already register for the follow-up level in the next period. Even if the result of the exam is not yet certain. If the deadline has passed and you have not passed the previous level, we will cancel your registration and you will receive a refund.
With less than 12 registrations, the LTC has the right to cancel a course. You will be informed about this and you will receive a refund.
About 2 months before the start date, the schedule will be published on the website and you can register. If you want to stay informed, sign up for a reminder (for the course of your choice) via the website www.eur.nl/ltc.
This can be done up to the registration deadline. Then you will be refunded. After the deadline, refunds are unfortunately no longer possible.
An intake (short conversation with a teacher; and for English also a short writing test) determines which course you can enroll in. An assessment consists of an oral and a written test; and for English also a "Quick Placement Test". After an assessment you will receive a level statement, which you can use for example for master admission.
If you are no longer a beginner and want to enter at a higher level, an intake is mandatory. An intake is a short conversation (via Zoom) with the teacher and costs 5 euros (SP and NL). The intake for English consists of a conversation and a writing test and costs 50 euros.
If you fail the course with one fail, you will have the opportunity to re-sit that part of the exam*. It is only possible to take a re-sit once.. If you have two or more fails it is not possible to take a re-sit. In that case you have to retake the course. You can request a re-sit via email@example.com.
*Note that you can only resit the listening or speaking part of the exam for Dutch and Spanish courses. For all other languages you cannot resit these parts of the exam.
Attendance is not mandatory, but recommended. If you follow a course for an elective, attendance is required by the faculty.
At ELS the courses are taught by students, at LTC by qualified teachers. The courses at LTC are also concluded with an exam and an official certificate.
The courses are mainly given in the language itself. In addition, English is used as the language of instruction.
Participants are expected to spend approximately 3 hours per week on self-study in addition to the weekly contact hours.
Course materials are not included in most courses. We will inform you about the details in the confirmation.
This almost never happens since an intake is mandatory and determines the correct entry level. If a level turns out to be incorrect, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We consult with the teacher. Changes are only possible if there is room in another group.
You register for the course yourself via the website. In the payment option, choose 'Other on account'. You then pay a registration fee of 2.50. Then send an e-mail to email@example.com with the details of your employer (company name, address, contact person and e-mail address). We will send the invoice after the start of the course.
