Clinical training only in Dutch

Unfortunately it is not allowed to continue your medical training in the Netherlands as English speaking transfer student right away. First of all, medical training in the Netherlands is in Dutch, and proficiency in Dutch (C1 level) is a requirement for any student to participate in clinical activities.

Secondly your previous education history needs to be assessed to establish your knowledge and skills level, in order to find out what year or semester of the 6 years MD training in our system is equivalent. Diploma/transcript assessment is done via NUFFIC, please see here for further information: BIG register.
