Dutch Courses for the Scientific Community

Tuesday, September 1 - Wednesday, September 30 2020


The Square Mile and BioPartner offer open enrolment Dutch courses  for members of the scientific community and their partners, with the next round starting September 2020. Participants learn Dutch through Zoom and in person and meet peers from other high-tech enterprises, enhancing both their ability to settle in the region and network within interdependent organisations. What do our current participants say about the 2019-2020 courses?

“It is really nice to be in a small group like ours. We can ask many additional questions and feel involved.”

“Very enjoyable lessons in which I think we are making good progress. Ideal size group, and a good balance between course led book learning (and vocabulary) with conversational teacher led learning. The group has a good rapport between each other and with the teacher, and all seem to be doing well.”

Courses starting Autumn 2020

We are offering a range of courses  for beginners and intermediate learners in very small groups of up to 6 participants.  The groups  will take place mainly online via Zoom and if appropriate at the BioPartner building on the Leiden Bio Science Park. Once we have received your application, we will contact you for a telephone intake to assess your level and allocate you to the most appropriate group.  Courses will be planned subject to participant availability and will generally run from 17.00 to 19.30. Lessons take place once a week for 16 weeks.
