Open Universiteit, Netherlands

The Open Universiteit of the Netherlands offers a number of courses in English. However, this only means that the course materials are in English. Registration, tutoring and/or examinations are in Dutch. These courses are intended for students who are enrolled in a regular programme and therefore read and write Dutch fluently. This means that the Bachelor and Master Degrees of the Open Universiteit are out of reach for those without a good command of the Dutch language.

There is an exception, the School of Science offers six courses that are completely in English, including registration, tuition and examination:

Energy Analysis

Environment, Science & Society

Ecosystems and Human Well-being (enrollment only open to students following the Maastricht University Bridging Program Master Sustainability Science and Policy)

Scientific and Professional Publishing on Environment and Sustainability (enrollment only open to a limited number of PhD students of Research School SENSE)

European Union, Governance and Sustainability (enrollment only open to students following the Maastricht University Bridging Program Master Sustainability Science and Policy)

Corporate Responsibility for Sustainable Development

However collaboration between the Open Universiteit in the Netherlands and (international) partners has resulted in our contribution to courses and programmes in English:
