English language requirements


English is the language of instruction in all programmes. As the Problem Based Learning method requires active participation of students in group meetings, it is of the utmost importance that you have a good working knowledge of English. This means that you must be able to read the required literature, to participate in tutorial group discussions, and to take written and oral examinations.


If English is not your native language, you are required to submit a proof of English language proficiency. We recommend the following minimum level: TOEFL iBT 90, IELTS 6.5, or CEF level B2
