Many Dutch universities teach degree courses in English and therefore you may not need to learn Dutch. However, if you hold a valid foreign diploma and/or wish to take a degree programme taught in Dutch, you must demonstrate that you have a sufficient command of the Dutch language, regardless of your nationality.
As proof your Dutch language proficiency, you can present the diploma awarded for passing the state examination in Dutch as a Second language (NT2-II). You must have passed all four components of the NT2-II course.
What benefits could you reap from learning the Dutch language?
With Dutch Studies, you may start learning Dutch right away, in your own home. Aspiring students will find in our system the best solution to study Dutch up to the NT2-Programme II level (also known as NT2-B2) while they are still in their home countries.
Our online educational system is to the point, interactive and user-friendly. We can get you started very quickly with the basics of the Dutch language such as sounds, numbers and simple sentences. Gradually, we will take you on a journey through practical themes (introducing yourself, shopping, at the doctor’s, housing, celebrations, etc) and expand your vocabulary as well as your abilities to form sentences and ask questions thanks to intensive grammar exercises. Our modules cover the NT2-Programme I and NT2-Programme II levels. The NT2-Programme II is meant for people who want to work in middle and higher level jobs or want to study in Dutch higher education institutions (e.g. at a Dutch hogeschool HBO or university WO).
You will be going through a large variety of hands-on exercises. Based on your answers, our educational system will adapt the upcoming content to suit your pace. You will have learning milestones that will be carefully overseen to ensure the integrity of your vocabulary, syntax, grammar and conjugation.
Your will be also assigned a personal tutor who will oversee your progress in the writing, reading and speaking areas.
