Do you want to test yourself  your  knowledge of a foreign language? Use the diagnostic test DIALANG. The test  result provides the user only a first indication about his or her language skills.

Are you new to our school:  Before joining a course you should also consult the  teacher, preferably during the information evening on Wednesday, 30 August, 2017 between 19:00 to 21:00 hours.

If you already know your level for Dutch, Volksuniversiteit Eindhoven strongly recommends you to register yourself before the information evening. Should it be necessary to change your level afterwards, we will cooperate as much as possible. You will get 3% discount if you register before 1 August.

Upon and/or after registering for a course you must follow the teacher’s advice concerning the appropriate course (level)  for you.

Volksuniversiteit Eindhoven does not offer Civic Integration Courses (inburgeringscursussen).

Who can take part?

To take the Dutch courses you must have finished secondary school in your native country. It is essential to have ten years of schooling. A good understanding of the English language is required, as level 1 and 2 will be taught with English as auxiliary language.

Course details

Most courses start in September. These courses usually consist of 25 lessons lasting 1,25  hour. Some extra courses, specially  up to level 2, start from November until April. The maximum number of students in a group is usually 12 to 14 students. 8 is a minimum. Books are not included in the fee and have to be bought by the students themselves.

To follow the courses successfully, it is necessary to attend all lessons (To miss one or two might be possible, but not more). You have to do homework for every lesson. This takes about 2 to 4 hours per week.

After having attended 80% of the classes and doing the requested homework, students may ask for a certificate in order to continue to the next level. However, this certificate is not an official diploma.
