How to register

LTC | How to register for a course

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

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

*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.

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.

We use different rates for students, employees and external parties. For this we refer you to the link below:


If you want to use a language course for an elective and want to be eligible for ECTS, we recommend that you contact your faculty to find out what the exact arrangements are or check the link below. In most cases you will receive 2.5 EC for a course of 25 hours.

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 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 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.

You need to request a re-sit exam through the office of the Language & Training Centre.


If you fail the course with one fail, you will have the opportunity to re-sit that part of the exam in the next exam period. It is only possible to take a re-sit once. You can only take a re-sit of the part you failed. 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. The costs for the different parts or the re-sit are as follows:

  • Writing: € 35
  • Reading: € 35
  • Listening: € 35
  • Oral: € 35


All other languages

Should you fail your course (total grade lower than 5.5) or are you unable to attend your exam date, you may take a re-sit exam during the exam of the next course period.

  • You can only take the re-sit exam once. 
  • You cannot retake listening or oral tests, only the final written test. 

The costs of a re-sit are € 50,-

It is not possible to get the cost of the assessment refunded after registering for an English language course at the LTC.

An intake English costs € 85,- and is valid for a period of one year. If you participate in a language course within a year, 50 % of the intake costs (€ 42,50) will be refunded within 3 weeks after your course has started.

You are able to pay via iDeal, Creditcard, Bancontact and Paypal in our web shop.

All courses taught at the Language & Training Centre are monolingual. This means the courses are taught in the language you are trying to learn. The support language for most courses is English. Therefore, all participants need to have a good knowledge of the English language.

Please note that the final exam of a language course takes place in a separate session. This is on a predetermined date and can be found in the course schedule on the relevant webpage.
