At Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, courses taught in Dutch are only accessible for students who are sufficiently proficient in the Dutch language. Attaining such a level of proficiency usually takes several years and so it is normally not possible for exchange students to enroll in Dutch taught courses.
As an exchange student, you must take a minimum of 24 ECTS credits per semester (or 48 ECTS for the whole academic year). An 8 is considered a high mark and a 7 is more common. The Department of Dutch as a Second Language (NT2 Academy) offers extensive Dutch language courses for exchange students.
Dutch grades range from 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest). These courses cover eight weeks and take place two evenings a week.
You must fill out a course registration form in advance, which is made available to students in mid-July for the Fall semester, and in mid-December for the Spring semester.
