Some applicants may be exempted from submitting the language proficiency test results:

  • Applicants who have a Dutch diploma of secondary education, at least HAVO / VWO / MBO-4.
  • Applicants who have a diploma of secondary education in a country listed in the diploma list drawn up on behalf of the associates of institutions of higher education, as published on the website of the code of conduct.
