Choose the right route

Determine which exam you are going to take

Are you finding it difficult to determine which exam route you can best take? Before you start studying, it is good to think about your ultimate goal. Based on that goal, you then choose the exam and the study programme. Below are a number of situations.

I have an integration requirement (verplicht inburgeren), but I do not want to enrol in education after integration.

 

The integration exam at A2 level is a suitable exam if you are not going to enrol in education after integration.

 

I have an integration requirement, and I want to enrol in an MBO programme after integration.

 

To be admitted to an MBO programme after your integration, you will need a diploma for the State Examination NT2 Programme I. Your Dutch language proficiency must be at the B1 level to pass this exam. In addition to the State Examination NT2 Programme I, you also need to take two separate exam sections: Knowledge of Dutch Society (Kennis van de Nederlandse Maatschappij, KNM) and Orientation on the Dutch Labour Market (Oriëntatie op de Nederlandse Arbeidsmarkt, ONA).

 

I have an integration requirement, and I want to enrol in an HBO or university programme after integration.

 

HBO and university programmes require a diploma for the State Examination NT2 Programme II. Your Dutch language proficiency must be at the B2 level to pass this exam. In addition to the State Examination NT2 Programme II, you also need to take two separate exam sections: Knowledge of Dutch Society (Kennis van de Nederlandse Maatschappij, KNM) and Orientation on the Dutch Labour Market (Oriëntatie op de Nederlandse Arbeidsmarkt, ONA).

 

I am looking for a job at the HBO or university level, and I want to increase my chances.

 

Do you want to increase the chance of finding a job at the HBO or university level with proof of your Dutch language proficiency? Then choose the State Examination NT2 Programme II. With a diploma from this exam, you show that you master Dutch at the B2 level, and that can help in getting hired for a job.
