Proof of Dutch knowledge for prospective students

Would you like to start a study course in Dutch at a Dutch-speaking university or college in Belgium? Then you must be able to prove a certain level of Dutch. In most cases this is level B2, but for some courses level C1 is required.

If you need B2, we can help you. First, ask your university or college whether a certificate awarded by the Huis van het Nederlands is accepted. We are not able to test level C1.

Which test are you taking at the Huis van het Nederlands?

The test consists of two parts. You start with reading and listening. This part is done on the computer and takes half a day. If this part is too difficult, the test will stop there and you will not have passed. 

If the reading and listening test goes well, an appointment will be made for the speaking and writing test at a later date. This is done with an employee of the Huis.
