Examinations (optional)

Although courses are first and foremost designed to meet your specific requirements, they can be followed by examinations resulting in a recognized diploma. For example FCE (Cambridge First Certificate) or one of the Cambridge Business English exams – Higher, Vantage or Preliminary (European framework levels C1, B2 and B1 respectively).

These exams are run by the British Council and can be taken at several examination centers throughout Holland. More than 12,000 employers, universities and government institutions recognize these exams worldwide. For more information, follow the link www.cambridgeesol.org.

In addition, a number of HBO courses in the Netherlands give exemption for English to students who have a Cambridge diploma at B2 or C1 level.
