Course programme 2021-2022

Course programme and year calender Dutch courses September 2021 – July 2022
The lessons of VU-NT2 will be given online during Lesson Period 4 (May- July 2021), via Zoom for Education. This is the result of the corona measures (lockdown) by the Dutch government.

During the academic year there are several opportunities to start in a group course on Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam’s lively campus, right next door to the Zuidas business district. You can take a course to suit your own ambitions, either in the evening or during the day. Each course consists of one or more modules, from beginner to advanced levels. After application, you will be allocated to the best group for you according to your current level of proficiency.
