Study description

With 23 million speakers in the Netherlands and Flanders, Dutch is one of Europe's mid-sized languages. Students in the bachelor's programme in Dutch at the University of Oldenburg not only study Dutch language and literature, but also delve into elective areas such as history, politics, law, and economics.

After successfully completing six semesters, students are awarded a bachelor's degree, which qualifies them to move directly into the labour market. Alternatively, students may choose to continue their studies with a Master of Arts (M.A.) or a Master of Education (M.Ed.). The bachelor's programme is distinguished by its practical orientation, which includes study abroad, internships, academic English, communication/rhetoric, and instruction in applying for jobs, preparing students in concrete ways for their future careers.

Students should have interest in languages, literature, and cultures. In short, they should enjoy reading!
