Entry Requirements
Our courses are designed for highly educated people. Having a higher education degree or being a student at a university is an absolute must. Please take also into account that our courses are not suitable for slow learners.

Language requirements
You must speak English if you want to be admitted to our A1 and A2 courses. Participation in our courses requires knowledge of the English language. At the beginner’s levels (A1 and A2), there must be a language of instruction. The language of instruction is English. You need to speak/understand English at least at A2 level.

If you book our course but you do not speak English well, we will cancel your booking. We will charge our administration fee (25 euro) and refund the rest of your payment.

Please take note: If provide us with wrong information about your level of Engels and during the first lesson it appears that you do not speak English well, your admission will be directly canceled. You will not be allowed to participate in the course anymore. You will not receive any refund.

Dutch Placement Test
Students who intend to enroll in a Dutch course at Dutch Course Online, and who have previously studied the Dutch language elsewhere, must first complete the Dutch Placement Test. Those students who have never studied the language before, must first complete the Placement Test for New Students.

By taking our placement test you agree to receive our newsletter, as well as promotional offers and announcements from Dutch Course Online. Your name and email address will not be shared with any third party. You can unsubscribe from our newsletter at any time.

We provide our placement test free of charge under these conditions:
We allow to take our Placement test only one time. If you like to take our Placement test more than one time you have to contact us and get our permission to take the test second or third time. If you take our placement test second or third time without contacting us, we will charge you 25 euro for every time you have taken our test without our permission. In this case, you will receive an invoice by email you have provided us with the test.

If you book our course without taking our Placement Test, we will suspend your booking and ask you to take our placement test. If you do not pass the test, we will charge our administration fee (25 euro) and refund the rest of your payment. Payment fees for PayPal or Credit card payments are not refundable.

Student account
You need a student account for e-learning and homework. Your account will be automatically generated after your booking. Please use the same email address for every booking and use it for your student account (Student Dashboard).

Do you have a partner? Please book your courses separately from each other. You and your partner need to use their own email addresses and have different accounts with us. Otherwise, you will not be able to take our tests and receive your Dutch certificate.
