Language requirements

All courses at the Amsterdam University of the Arts are officially taught in Dutch, except the Master of Museology offered by the Reinwardt Academy, the Master Film by the Netherlands Film Academy and
DAS Theatre, that are fully taught in English. The Academy of Architecture also offers its three master's programmes in English. Especially at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and the dance department of de Theaterschool many courses are also taught in English due to the international nature of the arts practice.

Unless specifically mentioned in the course programme, sufficient knowledge of the Dutch language is obligatory. For courses taught in English the international student should at least meet the requirements for a IELTS or comparable test score of at least 5 (five) for bachelor level and a score of 6 (six) for the master level.
