Over onsOnze positieOnderwijsbeleidLanguage and Culture PolicyAbout LCP


Over the past 10-15 years, the UG has taken major steps towards becoming a truly international university. At present we have over a hundred English-taught Master’s degree programmes, 21 English-taught Bachelor’s degree programmes and more than 20 joint programmes with international partners. As a result, 12% of our students and 18% of our academic staff now come from abroad. Moreover, approximately 20% of our students go abroad for part of their degree programme.

The Council has advised the Dutch government to require all higher education institutions to establish a clear language policy, ensuring good quality control of English and the provision of Dutch language and culture courses for foreign nationals. Considering the changes in both national and institutional contexts, it is clearly time for the UG to establish a new language and culture policy, with English language support directed more towards qualitative measures and contextual needs, and including intercultural competences.
