English proficiency

Since the programme is taught in English, all applicants must be able to read with ease, follow lectures and express their thoughts in fluent written and spoken English. For students whose first language is not English, either of the following qualifications will meet the English language requirement for entry to the programme*:

  • Test Scores: TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language): paper-based TOEFL level of minimum 550, or a computer-based TOEFL level of minimum 213, or an internet-based TOEFL level of minimum 79-80 or IELTS (International English Language Testing System): a minimum score of at least 6.5, and on each part minimum 6.0
  • Proof of Study: Submitting proof they have studied at least one academic year (or 60 ECTS credits) in an English-language Bachelor or Master programme. (In this case, the board of admission may still ask for additional proof of proficiency in English, demonstrated by a language certificate)
  • Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR): minimum B2.

*If your degree was issued by a recognized educational institution in Belgium or the Netherlands, you are exempted to provide evidence of your level of English (TOEFL or proof of study).
