Dutch for University of Groningen students, PhDs' and postdocs A2 > A2/B1 - in person

At the moment there are no courses open for registration. The next course round will start in February 2022. If you subscribe to our newsletter, we will keep you informed about the exact start of the course registration.


Dutch is the language of instruction right from the start of the first lesson. The language courses concentrate on communication, and that means that the Dutch learnt is actively practised during class. The intended final level of the course is CEFR A2/B1. The course consists of 24 contact hours, per lesson you should count on 2-3 hours of self-study.

International students, PhDs' and postdocs of the University of Groningen are being offered these Dutch courses at the Language Centre by the Board of the University of Groningen. Read everything about these regulations and see if it applies to you here.

Advice
Students who already have some knowledge of Dutch, to be demonstrated with an advice card, may take a level A2>A2/B1 course. In order to receive an advice card, please attend the Dutch Office Hour or take the level A1>A2 or 0>A2 course.

Dutch for native speakers of German
There are separate groups for German native speakers. Because German and Dutch are so similar, the material can be covered faster.

When purchasing a regular book online, pay attention to the delivery time to ensure that you receive the book on time. You can also often buy the regular book directly from your local bookstore.

Along with this book you will receive an individual code for a website offering complementary exercises, spoken text fragments, movies and songs. This code is linked to your e-mail address. You will need access to the website to be able to adequately participate in the course.
