Accredited by the Dutch Higher Education Accreditation Organisation NVAO in the Netherlands
The academic Bachelor of Science in Leisure Studies is 'knowledge-oriented'. During your studies you develop a number of academic and management competencies by analysing academic knowledge. To do this, you will often work independently and sometimes in small groups on cases and assignments.
This programme is completely English taught. Academic literature is often only available in English and each university graduate has to be capable of writing an article in English. As study (and future work) will take place within an international setting, you have to be prepared to communicate in English.
The programme runs over three years. Each year is organized into two semesters and/or four terms (for the first year)
You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
You can be admitted to the programme with:
Every Studielink application / enrollment needs to be created with a unique e-mail address. This e-mail address is used for communication with the applicant which is why it is of high importance that the e-mail address of the applicant is used. We cannot proceed with an application if the e-mail address of the applicant is not used.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
