Cambridge comes to The Netherlands

Certain Cambridge English Qualifications have now been accepted for vocational use in The Netherlands to prove skill level in English. This means that thousands of students who hold a Cambridge English Qualification no longer need to pass the institutional examinations in English as well to apply for a place in a higher education institution or for work purposes. This should streamline English exams for these students as the Cambridge English Qualification is recognised around the world.

The exams that are now recognised are Cambridge English A2 Key, B1 Preliminary and B2 First (general, for schools and business).

“The Cambridge English Qualifications are designed to test real-life communication skills, which will give a skills boost to thousands of ambitious Dutch students,” says Marleen Soto, Country Manager Benelux at Cambridge Assessment English. “It will also make life much easier for institutions and teachers, as many of their students will already have Cambridge English Qualifications. We’re now working closely with schools to help them become part of the Cambridge network of Official Preparation Centres that help students learn English and prove their skills to the world.”
