Dutch (NT2) - Intensive Course for the Dutch State Exam

Our intensive course for the NT2 State Exam consists of three consecutive courses in one year: a course for beginners, intermediate level students, and advanced level students. These courses prepare you for the NT2 State Exam, program II within a year.

What do we expect from you?

Our intensive language courses leading to the NT2 State Exam are geared to a highly-educated target group. We work at an accelerated pace and expect a great deal of independent work from our students. It is also important that you are proficient in English and that your computer skills are up-to-date. You should also take into account that the course has a study load of 20 to 40 hours per week.

What can you expect from us?

You will be part of a fixed group of students with a maximum of 18 students per class. All our lecturers have a university degree. They will help you look at your own learning process and provide tips and ideas to guide this process. Our classrooms are also optimally equipped for innovative language education. Every room is equipped with an interactive whiteboard to provide interactive language education. At each level, one of our lecturers will function as your mentor. He or she will supervise your learning process and—if applicable—your process toward the integration process.

Civic Integration

Are you obliged to participate in a civic integration program and do you want to take the NT2 State Exam, program II? Then you are more than welcome to join us. We have been awarded the Keurmerk Blik op Werk quality mark, which means that you can pay for our intensive courses with a DUO loan. We also work closely with Tilburg Municipality and other municipalities in the region.

Would you like to prepare for studying in the Netherlands? Then you can follow the intensive course up to and including the NT2 Upper-Intermediate course. After that, you can enrol in the academic pre-Bachelor's program, which will prepare you for a study program at a Dutch university within one year.

Mandatory Intake

Before you start the intensive courses, a lecturer from the Language Center will do an intake interview with you, which may include a (written) test. Based on the outcome, we determine whether the courses are suitable for you and which course you should start with. Would you like to participate in the intensive courses? Then first fill in the registration form, and you will be invited for an intake interview.
