Course descriptions

You can find previous course descriptions in the CBS course catalogue.

You cannot have a course description signed or stamped. The material is available through an official CBS site and thus original.

UK workers VISA/documentation for "language of instruction"

Diploma Supplement section 2.5 of your diploma states the language of instruction and examination of your programme.

The language of instruction for the individual courses is stated in the course description in your programme regulations. You can find your programme regulations here.

You can also find a separate confirmation of which bachelor programmes and which graduate programme are taught in English here:

The information needed for the English language proficiency application is already documented and verified through the final diploma from CBS (the diploma supplement).
