​English language support


Q: I have applied for the Intensive English programme, but don't know at which level I need to start?

A: We can give you an indication of how many levels you may need to complete. This is only for planning purposes, however, as your actual level will only be known once you have been assessed after arrival. For more information, click here.


Q: Can I apply for a full degree programme while still completing the English programme?

A: Yes, you can apply while you're still completing the English language programme. However, you cannot study both simultaneously, nor can we guarantee your admission to the degree programme, as that partly depends on whether you have acquired adequate English language skills.

If you have applied for the English programme and a degree programme at the same time, acceptance into the English programme does not mean you have been accepted for the degree programme as well.
