This will make sure you register for the right course. Intakes are held for French/Spanish 2 through 4. You can register for French/Spanish 1 without an intake. The intake is free of charge. Please email your phone number to firstname.lastname@example.org or call +31 (0)317 48 25 52 to make an appointment for the intake.
If you want to enrol in Social Dutch 2*, 3 or 4, Basic Dutch 2*, Intermediate Dutch 1, 2 and Advanced Dutch 1, 2, 3, an initial interview is mandatory if you have not followed the previous level at Wageningen in'to Languages.

Please contact our Service Centre (email@example.com/ 0317-482552) to make an appointment for the initial interview.

20. How do you schedule the classes.
When scheduling classes, we take into account mandatory lesson-free weeks such as examination weeks, re-examination weeks, study weeks and holidays. However, there may be periods in which regular classes are given and exams are administered. We take the students’ timetables into account as much as possible, but cannot always guarantee that classes are scheduled in examination-free periods.
The class schedule is posted on our website well in advance of the start of the corresponding course. You yourself are responsible for determining whether this schedule fits with your study and professional obligations.
