Language requirements

English is the language of instruction in all of our programmes. As the Problem Based Learning method requires active participation in group meetings, it is important that you have a good working knowledge of English. You have to 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 therefore 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.
