Dutch language courses in Utrecht

Dutch coursesWe have a wide range of Dutch language courses to offer: from beginner courses to courses for speakers of German and courses for foreign doctors. Babel can help everybody, whether they are students who would like to learn the basics of Dutch, people who would like to take the Staatsexamen or people who simply want to perfect their Dutch language skills.

Babel gears its courses towards people with a higher educational background: the pace of learning is quite high, and students need to be able to speak English, which is the language of instruction (at least at the start of the course).

First course at Babel?

Is this the first time you are taking a Dutch course at Babel? Then you may need to do a placement test and/or to have an intake interview with a teacher, depending on your situation. You always need to do a placement test if you would like to take an intermediate course (B1) or higher. Check here whether you need to do the placement test, the intake interview, or both.

DUO student loan?

Are you entitled to a student loan from the DUO (Educational Administration Service) to help pay for your Dutch course? Then you should always have an intake interview with a teacher, before you can register for a course. This page gives more information about registering for a course with a DUO student loan.
