Dutch for work, study and daily life

Learning Dutch in Amsterdam

In the Dutch courses at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, on the lively Zuidas business district, you will learn or improve the language skills you need in order to enjoy living in the Netherlands and to achieve success in your studies or work. Our courses also introduce you to the culture and traditions of Dutch society and give you the opportunity to expand your network by meeting people with different nationalities, backgrounds and from different walks of life.

High quality
The academic standards at VU-NT2 ensure that you will be enrolled in a high-quality course,  specifically developed for participants who have completed an appropriate level of secondary education (comparable with Dutch havo or higher). We use multimedia rooms and a digital language lab.

What can you expect?
Your focus will be on improving your spoken Dutch under the expert guidance of highly skilled and experienced teachers. You will also receive feedback on written homework assignments to help you improve your spelling, grammar, use of register and sentence structure. The pace is reasonably fast. If you want to take full advantage of the course, it is essential that you also study at home.

Dutch on every level
During the academic year there are several opportunities to join one of the group courses, see our course programme for the start dates. Each course consists of one or more modules, from beginner to advanced levels. After application, you will be allocated to the best level and group for you, according to your current level of proficiency.
