The Academic Language center (ATC) offers a variety of language courses for interesting rates for companies, government agencies, private clients and students and staff members of Leiden University. The University expects staff and students who intend to remain here for a longer period to acquire at least a passive knowledge of the Dutch language.  Our lecturers in English-taught programs are skilled users of English at (at least) C level, a requirement that is also an element of the Basic Teaching Qualification (BKO).

All courses offered by the Academic Language center focus on all language skills: speaking, writing, listening and reading. Grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary are comprehensively discussed.  All courses are available for students and staff.  Read more about available programs on the ATC website and check with your supervisor if he/she is willing to reimburse the costs.
