This one year program is aimed at non-Dutch-speaking students who want to excel in a new language enter higher education in Dutch. The program is 15 hours of daytime classes every week. It combines language acquisition and three modules designed to deepen participants’ knowledge: Academic Study Skills; Culture, Politics and Social Relations; and Dutch Phonetics and Pronunciation.
Within language acquisition, we start at absolute beginner-level and finish at Level 5, with the Interuniversity Test for Dutch as a Foreign Language serving as the final exam. Passing this exam means students comply with the language requirements for higher education and can enroll to study in Dutch at a Flemish university or university college.
The most experienced Linguapolis teachers coach the students both in their language learning process and in their final higher education choices. The program also comprises cultural activities (museum visits, theatre evenings, a Christmas party, ect.)
- The one-year program is an intensive full-time program
- Its participants are enrolled at the University of Antwerp, receive a student card and can use all of the university’s facilities (library, student restaurant, sports facilities, etc.).
