You are always welcome to enrol in one of our intermediate vocational courses when you have completed your general secondary education. Your prior education
determines the level you can enrol in. Some courses have additional requirements. If you do not have a pre-vocational secondary school diploma or a document issued by your higher general secondary school that shows that you have passed year 3, you will start your career as a student at our college in an Entry course.
This is a specific programme within the regular course. You will have to meet certain entry requirements to be admitted to this programme, which do not apply when you want to enrol in the regular course.
What are the regular admission requirements?
- A pre-vocational secondary school diploma with a pass mark for Dutch and at least a pass mark 7 for English, or
- A document that shows that you have passed year 3 of either higher general or pre-university secondary school
This course requires you to participate in certain introductory activities. You will receive more information about these activities after your application for enrolment. You will have to
- Write a letter of motivation in English
- Meet for an introductory interview in English
Apart from the legally determined tuition/course
fees, you will have to take into account additional costs for learning materials and perhaps some extras.
For most courses, you will need books. A laptop might also be a specific requirement.
Depending on your course, you might also need special software or clothing.
All curriculums are designed to help you enter the labour market as well prepared as possible. This may mean that we organise field trips or master classes for which you will have to pay an additional charge.
We also believe it is important for you to buy your own tools or devices so that you can practise after school hours.
We keep the costs as low as possible without compromising quality. Any additional costs are determined in consultation with the student representative board. If the costs are a problem and you need help, there are several forms of financial support.
