State exam NT2

For study (secondary- and higher education / a university) or employment in institutions and companies, in most cases, a certified level of Dutch is required. The NT2 diploma (Nederlands als tweede taal (NT2) Staatsexamen) proves that you have sufficient grasp of the Dutch language to study or get a job in the Netherlands.

NT2 program I or II

The NT2 program I is designed for people who (want to) study or work at intermediate level. The difference between the two exams is primarily in the type of texts and assignments; in NT program II, the texts are more abstract and difficult than in program 1. The requirements for grammatical correctness are the same in both programs. The NT2 exam was initially not intended for the civic integration, but for some years now, the diploma of the State examination NT2 is an exemption for the civic integration exam.

(Note: The NT2 program II is designed for people who (want to) study or work at academic or near academic level. Universities require this exam as proof that your Dutch is good enough to follow a Dutch study . For employers, it is a proof that your Dutch is good enough to work in a Dutch environment.)
