The ISK is a department within Zuid-West College for students from the age of 12 until 16, coming from abroad, who need to learn the Dutch language. We offer a 1 or 2 year course, which leads to different levels of education. The students will be immersed in the Dutch language, including in the other subjects we offer: mathematics, English, world orientation, arts and sports.
After 6 weeks we will test the students to make sure they receive education at the right level. After that we will test the students every six weeks as to follow their progress.
We are conscious of the fact that newcomers in the Netherlands need their own space to get used to both the Netherlands as well as the Dutch education system. All classes have their own mentor and the language class has their own social worker. We assist the students in integrating with the students from the regular school classes.
