Avans has set minimum language requirements for foreign exchange students. This helps us maintain high standards of English language skills in our international classrooms and ensures we comply with Dutch national guidelines. As a student, it is your responsibility to ensure that you satisfy these requirements.
For the Avans exchange programmes taught in English the minimum English language prerequisite is an academic IELTS test or equivalent with an overall band score of at least 6.0 and a pass in ‘speaking and writing’ and ‘listening and reading’.
As an exchange student you must provide proof your linguistic skills by means of an official certificate: OLS, IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC or Cambridge ESOL.
