The UAF offers support for refugees from Ukraine (Ukrainians and third-country nationals that fled due to the war), to meet admission criteria for universities or universities of applied sciences in The Netherlands.
Through the British Language Training Centre (BLTC) in Amsterdam, every two weeks an intensive IELTS course will start of approximately 30 hours of online training + 30 hours of homework. During these 60 hours prospective students will be prepared for the IELTS exam, which will take place after the two weeks. Note that this is an intensive course and once you participate we expect full commitment when participating in the classes.
|Course dates||Exam dates|
|Monday 18 July – Friday 29 July||IELTS exam Tuesday 2nd of August|
|Monday 1 August – Friday 12 August||IELTS exam Tuesday 16th of August|
|Monday 15 August – Friday 26 August||IELTS exam Tuesday 30th of August|
Depending on class sizes, BLTC will assign you to a class. The above dates are not definitive.
The IELTS exam will take place at BLTC (Oxford House: Prins Hendrikkade 193, 1011 TD Amsterdam). Optionally you can sign up for an extra face to face exam training at BLTC on the morning of the exam.

For now, we offer one-time support for refugee students from Ukraine to be eligible to start studying as we have received many requests to offer financial support to meet admission criteria. In the future we will see whether we need to extend our services for more admission courses or counselling during study as well.
