Welcome to our Online Taster Courses! International Communication (IC) is a study programme for inquisitive students who understand the effect that messages, news and campaigns have on society, who feel comfortable using modern communication technology and who consider the world as their home. The programme trains students to become communication professionals who are pro-active, innovative, creative, respectful and responsible.

At the moment we are referring to Dutch pages here, but we are working hard to provide English content for you as well.
