If you are a native German speaker who is looking for a way to learn Dutch and complete the State Exams within one summer, the Summer course for native German speakers is a good option for you. This course takes five weeks in total and concludes with the State Exams. It is a full-time programme that aims to enable native German speakers to learn Dutch at an advanced level so they can start a Dutch-taught university programme in September.

This course requires some preparation, about which we will inform you once your application is complete.
