Update COVID-19

12 March 2020

During the coming period, the Language Centre will stay open, completely online. On this page you can read everything you need to know about our courses and services in times of COVID-19.


Currently we can only be reached by mail. The Harmony Building, and therefore the Language Centre desk, is closed.

University Translation and Correction Service

The University Translation and Correction Service (UVC) remains open and processes all requests and assignments by email (

Group courses

Now that our buildings are closed, our courses will continue online. We understand that this might raise some questions, so we would like to explain what this means for you.

The courses we normally host on-site will now be taught online through Blackboard Collaborate. The focus will be the same: in your course, you will receive personal attention from your teacher, and you will learn about the language and culture in a group setting.

Currently our English and Dutch intensive summer courses are open for registration.

Office hours

Our Dutch and English office hours are held by telephone or Google Meet. You can book your appointment online. Check all the information about our office hours here.
