                          Dutch: We strongly advise students to sign up for the intensive

                          at the faculty of Law, Economics, Political and Social Sciences or
                          when doing research in English.
                          Especially for exchange students, a 60 hour Erasmus Intensive
                          Language Course (EILC) is offered at the beginning of each
                          semester - a must for students who will be attending classes in
                          Dutch! Erasmus students who sign up for this course qualify for
                          an EILC grant, which allows them to participate for free.
                          Students who have been granted this EILC scholarship receive a
                          supplementary Erasmus grant from their National Agency or home
                          institution for the duration of the course. More info:

                             than the date specified by your university.
