Module Orientation Dutch Labour Market

Did you arrive after January 1, 2015 and are you required to integrate? Your integration exams consist not only of language exams, but also the exam ‘Orientation on the Dutch Labor Market’ and the exam ‘Knowledge of Dutch society’. The Tilburg University Language Center offers the module ‘Orientation on the Dutch Labor Market’ (ONA) to those required to integrate.

This module, which uses a book specifically for the task, prepares you for both the exam and your entrance into the Dutch labor market by getting a realistic idea about your possibilities for work and/or studies in the Netherlands. You will have a one-hour class a week for nine weeks during which you will compile a portfolio.

The module is being taught by an experienced career counsellor. She will help you to design your own portfolio reflecting your previous education, professional experience and plans for the future.

You can take this module while taking the Advanced Dutch as a Second Language course. Other interested parties are also welcome to attend this module, however, your level of Dutch must be at least B1 to be admitted.

You can request an exam from DUO once you have completed the classes. The exam consists of an assessment of your portfolio and a final interview.
