The University of Groningen Language Centre Dutch courses for non-native speakers are described in terms of the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR). This is a reference framework developed by the Council of Europe that provides a basis for comparing language proficiency levels and interpreting test scores.

If you want to register for a Dutch course and you have not followed a course with the Language Centre before, you must visit the office hour. You can only register for a course if you have been given the matching advice.

Dutch for University of Groningen Students and Staff

Please note there are special Dutch courses for University of Groningen Bachelor and Master students, and PhD students. These courses are partly or fully paid for by the University of Groningen! More information about the schedule and enrollment for the Dutch courses for students and staff.
