Language

Language of Instruction

The language of the EMM-Nano Master is English, i.e. the courses and the supporting documentation (e.g. lecture notes, slides) are in English, exams are held in English, etc.

No course of English (as a second language) is provided during the two years, hence the ability to attend courses in English is required.  An English test (TOEFL, IELTS, etc.) requirement is mandatory for those who did not get a degree with English taught courses. The precise requirement is formulated in the application section. No English test is asked to students coming from an English speaking country. 

Language Learning

During the first year in Leuven students have to follow a compulsory course on Dutch language and culture as part of the curriculum. Moreover, students can follow language courses at the various consortium universities, outside the curriculum, i.e. the courses are not included in the 120 credits of the program.

The four universities have a long recognized experience in teaching language courses.  The courses are offered in each semester at several levels (beginners, intermediate, advanced).
