Course programme 2022-2023

Course programme and year calender Dutch courses September 2022 – July 2023
VU-NT2 classes will be partially online. The day courses will be on the VU campus as much as possible. All evening courses are online, with the exception of the beginning courses for students (e.g. Basic Dutch on campus) who are on campus.

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. VU-NT2 also offers in-company and customized Dutch courses.
