State exam program I - B1

Work or study at MBO level 3 or 4

For Whom

With the State Exam program I – B1 you show that you have sufficient command of the Dutch language to be able to work or study in the Netherlands. State Exam Program I is for people who want to work or study at MBO-3 or -4 level.


The curriculum leads to language level B1. In this course we work with the Link+ method.


It is possible to enroll in this course at 5 different levels. To determine whether your language level and learning speed suit this intensive trajectory, tests are taken during the intake. At levels 1 to 4, each level has 30 lessons of 3 hours and level 5 has 14 lessons of 3 hours. Are you done with a level? Then you can proceed to the next level. After level 5 you are ready for the State Exam program I.


The entire process can be completed within 34 teaching weeks.


The course is taught at three different locations: Amsterdam, Rotterdam en Utrecht† The lessons are given in hybrid form for all courses. This means that half of the lessons during the week take place on location in a classroom, the other half are taught online.


The lessons cost €12,50 per hour. When paying the full amount per level in advance, you will receive a discount. Ask for the possibilities.
(The discount does not apply to students with a DUO loan)
