Dutch language certificate

You have enrolled in a program whose official language is Dutch. Your previous education known to us is not sufficient to prove that you have sufficient knowledge of the Dutch language.

You can provide proof of your Dutch proficiency by handing in one of the following certificates:

  • Certificate Nederlands als Vreemde Taal, Educatief Startbekwaam (STRT)
  • Certificate Nederlands als Vreemde Taal, Educatief Professioneel (EDUP)
  • Staatsexamen Nederlands als Tweede Taal, program II (NT2)

Under certain conditions, you may be granted an exemption from this requirement. More information can be found here. The School has to provide written confirmation of any such exemption. For more information and/or to request an exemption, please contact the Student Desk.

Action to be taken by student:

Submit a copy of the certificate or an original exemption letter.


Deposit a copy of the above-mentioned certificate or an original exemption letter in the white mailbox of the Student Desk at the reception of Academia Building. You may also mail them to: Tilburg University, Student Desk A 301, PO Box 90153, 5000 LE Tilburg.
