ITNA is the Interuniversity test of Dutch for speakers of other languages

The ITNA is the Interuniversitaire Taaltest Nederlands voor Anderstaligen (Interuniversity test of Dutch for speakers of other languages). This test was developed by the language centres of four Flemish universities (UGent, KUL, UA en VUB). If you are a non-native speaker of Dutch and you wish to register for a programme taught in Dutch at Ghent University, you have to prove that you know Dutch well enough, both orally and in writing. This can for example be done by passing the ITNA. More information on the ITNA can be found on the ITNA website.

Within a 12-month period, you may take the test four times. When retaking the test, you must respect an interval of at least two weeks between the test sessions.
