OU, Open Universiteit


The Open Universiteit of the Netherlands offers a number of courses in English and provides several international programmes in co-operation with other educational organisations.

Courses in English
The Open Universiteit of the Netherlands offers a number of courses in English. However, this only means that the course materials are in English. Registration, tutoring and/or examinations are in Dutch. These courses are intended for students who are enrolled in a regular programme and therefore read and write Dutch fluently. This means that the Bachelor and Master Degrees of the Open Universiteit are out of reach for those without a good command of the Dutch language.

There is an exception, the School of Science offers five courses that are completely in English, including registration, tuition and examination.
