Summer Online for Students & Dutch Intensive Summer Courses

We offer all prospective UT-students and UT-students our regular Dutch courses during this summer online. You can find the courses here.

It’s now possible for UT-employees and PhD’s to register for the Dutch Intensive Summer Courses starting 17 August.

Virtual Dutch Language Café

Monday-Friday from 12.00-13.00 hrs.

It isn’t easy to do things like have lunch with your colleagues or have a chat with your classmates during these difficult times. To help people connect, the UT Language Centre is offering a virtual Dutch Language Café where you can meet new people, have conversations about daily topics, and practice your Dutch all at the same time. We would like to welcome everyone who wants to practice their Dutch or help others practice Dutch every workday from 12.00 to 13.00 hrs. You can join the Language Café in a Canvas Conference. One of our Dutch teachers will place you in a small group and provide a conversation topic.

We really hope to see you online! You self-enroll using this link: https://canvas.utwente.nl/enroll/A8HNE7

Language skills, 21st century skills, employability skills …  Apart from studying and accomplishing the curriculum, skills are getting more and more important not only to study more effectively and successfully, but also to prepare for your future career.

The UT Language Centre (UTLC) helps you to practise these skills. We offer workshops, trainings and events in both English and Dutch. Presentation skills, language courses, academic writing, brain training, entrepreneurial skills, business model thinking, visual thinking or project management. And what about cross-cultural competences in a global environment? Start working on your skills now! Have a look in our course finder.
