International Communication Management - English - 3 years - Full-time

Climate change, migration, poverty, obesity. We face many global challenges, all of which require governments, organisations and citizens to collaborate and find solutions. Yet trust in business and political leaders is at an all-time low. Open, transparent and inclusive communication connects people and builds trust between an organisation and its stakeholders. The International Communication Management (ICM) programme is built on the concept of ‘sustainable communication’, using communication to create a better world. Get ready to join a new generation of communication professionals armed with strong critical and creative thinking skills, a global perspective and a strong international network.

Admission

ICM is a three-year programme. Unlike most THUAS programmes, which last for four years, the international three-year programme is more intensive. You’ll therefore need the equivalent of a higher level Dutch VWO diploma.

Admission requirements

You have a non-Dutch diploma

Before we can decide on your eligibility, we will need to assess your secondary school certificate. To make sure your certificate is evaluated fairly, we work with NUFFIC, an organisation that specialises in the assessment of international education qualifications.

This programme is taught entirely in English. You’ll need a good command of the English language, both spoken and written.

Bachelors candidates who are educated in the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada (Quebec only when the education language is English), Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Malta, or students holding a diploma (including English as an exam subject) stated on this diploma list, don’t need to take an English proficiency test.

All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient language test.

Please check our Admission requirements for more information.

If you completed your prior education in another country than those listed above, you might still qualify for exemption, if:

  • you have an American or International High School Diploma, or
  • you have an European or International Baccalaureate Diploma.

Please contact the Enrolment Centre and ask for details.

If you have not quite reached the level you need to enrol for a degree but your results are promising, we offer an the Prep School programme, which takes six months or one year. On completion of this, you will not only be ready to join a bachelor's, but you’ll also have learned a lot about the Netherlands, The Hague and our university.

You have a Dutch diploma

To start the three-year ICM bachelor's degree programme, you should have a VWO diploma with the appropriate profile. However, you could apply for the four-year degree programme in Communication taught in Dutch.
