Check the level of your diploma

Before continuing to the academic and language requirements for our study programmes, please check to see how your previous education compares to Dutch diplomas. The Nuffic site allows you to select the country where you studied and were awarded your diploma. It then shows a list of common diplomas for that country and the Dutch comparison for that diploma. For a 2-year associate or 4-year bachelor programme at NHL Stenden, you need a diploma that is at minimum NLQF 4/EQF 4 level (Dutch/European Qualifications Framework). For a master degree programme you need a diploma with a minimum NLQF 6/EQF 6 level.
