English / Dutch language requirement

Students are exempted from the English and / or Dutch language requirement when English L1 or L2 is followed as examsubject. If you cannot meet the English and / or Dutch language requirement you have to make an additional test as mentioned on the website.

Not the correct subject or level?

If you do not have the required subject or level you can do an additional test(s). The University of Twente only accepts certificates from CCVX, James Boswell or the Dutch so called 'Officieel Staatsexamen'.
