On a serious note, we face many global challenges. Climate change, migration, poverty, obesity. Trust in business and political leaders is at an all-time low. The world needs communications experts who can support business growth while keeping a socially responsible and sustainable perspective. Channelling communication to create a better world.
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. You’ll therefore need the equivalent of a higher level Dutch VWO diploma.
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.
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.
ExemptionsIf 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 a European or International Baccalaureate Diploma
Please contact the Enrolment Centre and ask for details.
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.

An open day is a great way to get inspired, check out our campus and meet our students, lecturers and study advisors. You can also pop into a few presentations by our lecturers to get you into the creative mind-set.
Student for a day
Shadow a current International Communication Management student and experience what it is like to study at THUAS. You will join discussions with existing workgroups and attend useful lectures. These lectures could help you decide whether your main interest lies in structuring a corporate communication strategy. Or would you be better off supporting organisations towards more transparency in the way they present themselves?
