About this course

Linguistics is the right degree for those who have an active interest in learning languages but also in language in general. It is also the right degree for those who like to (learn how to) solve puzzles and problems that require a systematic approach, as the methodologies applied in linguistics are objective and replicable. Prospective students should possess a valid secondary school/high school diploma or Dutch university preparatory education (VWO) diploma, and need to demonstrate a sufficient command of English.
