Certificates

We do not provice a certificate after the end of the course since we are not a language school. The MIP Dutch course aims to provide the opportunity for internationals to learn Dutch in the neighbourhood.

Refund policy

Refund of the full course fee is possible if you contact us via internationals@meerhoven.nl no later than one week after the first lesson of the course you attend. In other cases, a refund is only possible if we need to cancel the course. In that case only the expenses of the remaining lessons will be refunded.
