Intake and entry exam

You start with an intake and entry exam. Then you receive a course plan.


Within the class you will work at your own pace and language level. Reading and writing begins individually at your own pace. You will practice speaking in class under the teacher’s guidance. 
During the classes we use a language teaching programme in combination with a computer program. You will alternate between working on the computer and practicing in small groups. A sufficient number of computers are available in the classroom. You will receive guidance from experienced teachers and classroom assistants.

The social integration course consists of:

  • Reading and writing
    You will learn to read and write Dutch individually and at your own pace.
  • Speaking and listening
    You will practice your listening and speaking skills in the class with guidance from the teacher.
  • Knowledge of Dutch society and labour market orientation
    To increase your chances of passing, we recommend that you also use this programme online at home.
  • Knowledge of Dutch Society (KNM) and Labour market Orientation ( ONA) is also included in the programme. These components are taught in small groups during class. In order to ensure you are prepared, you can study the book ‘Kijk op Nederland” yourself.

Social integration examination A2 level ( inburgerexamen)

The social integration examination consists of five tests which assess your knowledge of Dutch language, Dutch society and the labour market. The language test focuses on reading, writing, speaking and listening. Upon successful completion of all these tests, you will receive the social integration certificate.

State Examination

If you want to enter a study , you better opt for the state examination instead of the social integration examination. If you pass this exam, you will not need to do your social integration exam. With a state examination certificate you can apply for the Dutch nationality and possess the right foundation for full participation in Dutch society, for instance through work or study.

State Examination I or State Examination II? State Examination I assesses whether your Dutch proficiency is sufficient for a job at MBO level or to take a vocational training programme at this level. State Examination II assesses whether your Dutch proficiency is sufficient for a job at HBO or academic level. The state examination always consists of four components: reading, listening, writing and speaking. Upon successful completion of all four exam components you will receive the NT2 diploma.
