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.
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.
Bachelor’s 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 TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, or Cambridge (CAE or CPE) certificate at the Enrolment Centre. The TOEFL, TOEIC and IELTS certificate must not be older than two years at the start of the study year.
See our Language requirements for more information.
Please note: THUAS does not accept Institutional TOEFL scores, TOEFL ITP scores or any other language test certificates.
If you take (or have taken) the TOEFL English proficiency test, please let THUAS check your online results to verify your TOEFL certificate. Our Institution Code is 7042.
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.

An open day is a great way to see our campus and meet current students, lecturers and our team of study advisors. You can also attend a few presentations by our lecturers, which will help you get into a critical and intercultural mind-set. It’s what we like to call ‘global citizenship’.
