All our Bachelor programmes are taught in Dutch and take three years to complete. You can find information about our undergraduate programmes in the online study guide.
Entry requirements for a Bachelor programme
To enrol in an academic Bachelor programme, you need to have (at least) a secondary education degree which entitles you to enrol in a university of the country in which the degree was conferred.
In exceptional cases, if you have been unable to complete your secondary education, you may be eligible for an alternative entrance procedure. Please note though that this procedure is only available in Dutch and as such you need to have knowledge of Dutch at level B2 (at least). Find out more about the method, timing and next information session.
Students who wish to enrol for a bachelor programme will have to prove their proficiency in Dutch.
Dutch language proficiency can be shown in two ways:
Either you have completed and passed at least one complete year (or 60 credits) of courses taught in Dutch at a secondary school, university college or university. The courses should not be aimed at acquiring the Dutch language or preparing for the required level of Dutch in higher education.
Or you’ve obtained one of the following language certificates (within the last two years):
- the certificate Interuniversitaire Taaltest Nederlands voor Anderstaligen (ITNA; level C1 for all language related programmes, level B2 for all other programmes).
- the Certificaat Nederlands als Vreemde Taal (profile Educatief Professioneel for all language related programmes, profile Educatief Startbekwaam for all other programmes).
- the diploma Staatsexamen Nederlands als tweede taal NT2 - programma II (all programmes except language related programmes)
Without proof of proficiency in Dutch, enrolling for one of our Dutch programmes is not possible. Please note that no other language certificates than the ones listed above will be accepted (such as certificates from Adult Education Centers (CVO)). Furthermore, certificates cannot be older than 2 years.
