International Communication Management 3 years, 2022-2023

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.

Below, you can find the entrance requirements for this programme when you have a Dutch diploma.
ICM is a three-year bachelor of arts programme. Unlike most THUAS programmes, which last for four years, the international three-year programme is more intensive. A propaedeutic certificate ('propedeuse') acquired at a (Dutch) university of applied sciences will not make you eligible for admission to this programme, unless you possess a VWO (or equivalent) diploma.

Niet toelaatbaar

You have a non-Dutch diploma

To enrol for the ICM 3 year programme you will need a secondary school diploma comparable to a Dutch VWO diploma and a good command of English.

Before we can decide on your eligibility, we’ll 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.

If you were not educated in the Netherlands you usually have to submit a language test to be admitted. Depending on the type and country of your diploma you may however qualify for exemption. Please check our entry requirements page for more information.

Perhaps your academic background is not quite the right level. Or you need some help improving your English skills. Don’t worry. There might be some alternative options to help you get in, and prepare yourself for a successful start of your studies at The Hague University of Applied Sciences (THUAS).

21+ admissions test
If you’re 21 years old before 1 September 2022, but don’t have a diploma or a qualification that meets the entry requirements, you can take the 21+ Admissions Test. The 21+ Admissions Test is offered at several dates between January and the start of the academic year, and consists of a digital general capacity test. Please note that you can only participate if you have an EEA-nationality or residence permit for the Netherlands that is valid on the test date.

English Academic Preparation Programme
Need help with your English? If you haven’t quite reached the right level of English for your chosen Bachelor’s or Master’s degree programme, you can enrol for English Academic Preparation Programme. After the successful completion of this programme, you’ll be ready to start your degree at THUAS and you will already have a good taste of studying and living in the Hague.

The Hague Pathway College
If you’d like to apply for a 3-year bachelor programme but don’t meet the academic entry requirements, you might be interested in joining The Hague Pathway College. This foundation programme has two intakes, one in September and one in January. It offers you the chance to bring your academic level up to the required level and work on your English at an academic level at the same time.Please check for more information.

There are no exceptions to the official admission requirements. The Enrolment Office is the only party that can make decisions regarding your qualification for admission based on official regulations. You can’t rely on any other sources of information for your qualification for admission.
