Program Description

International Communication Management

As organisations grow and become more multinational, they have a bigger demand than ever before for people who can understand and devise policy. Manage their communication. The Hague University equips its students to take on these key areas through our majors in Corporate, Marketing and Internal Communication.

Admission requirements

Since our international Bachelor programmes are taught entirely in English, you will need a good command of the English language, both spoken and written. Bachelor candidates who were educated in Holland, United Kingdom, Ireland, United States, Canada, Australia, New-Zealand, South Africa or Malta need not take an English proficiency test. All other prospective students are required to hand in a valid and sufficient TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), TOEIC, IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or Cambridge ESOL (CAE/CPE) certificate to the Enrolment Centre.

The minimum TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS and CAE/CPE requirements are provided on our website  

If you have not quite reached the level you need to enrol for a degree but your results are promising, we offer an English Prep School programme, which takes six months or one year. On completion of this, you will not only be ready to join a Bachelor class, but you’ll also have learned a lot about Holland, The Hague and our university.

Career prospects

With a bachelor degree in International Communication Management you can work in almost any major international organisation. You could be a public-relations officer, policy adviser, account manager, communication adviser or project co-ordinator for the government, with communication bureaus or as a freelancer. In a small organisation you could be an all-rounder whereas in a large organisation you will often have a specialist function in an area such as internal communication, external communication, press or public communication or marketing communication.


The programme will introduce you to the most important areas of communication:

  • Marketing communication
  • Corporate communication (also for non-profit organisations)
  • Internal communication
  • Public communication

What will you learn?

Year 1:

In the first year you will become acquainted with the fundamentals of communication as a discipline like corporate and internal communication and branding. In addition, you will learn how to operate in international teams. You will also work on communication issues with external clients. The programme consequently combines both theory and practice. The main phase of the study programme begins during the final term of the first year.

Year 2:

In the second year you will be immersed more deeply in  public communication. Furthermore, we offer you the possibility to take two different minors in the area in which you would eventually like to specialise. Some students will be able to take minors or other subject combinations abroad.

Year 3:

The third year begins with a third minor, followed by intensive preparation for the second semester, during which you will do a work placement of several months at an international company or organisation abroad. In the third year you will also complete your final paper, reporting on the research you independently conducted as part of your programme. 

Tuition & fees

The Dutch government has fixed the standard tuition fee for the last academic year on € 1,835. This goes for most of full-time, part-time, and dual EU/EEA students. The tuition fee for non-EU students was € 7,785. Please complete the order information form for details on what tuition fee will apply in your situation. For the upcoming academic year the tuition fees haven't been set yet.

The Hague University of Applied Sciences offers a total of 54 scholarships to students who would like to start their bachelor programme during the academic year 2014-2015. At €5,000 each, the scholarships cover almost two-thirds of the total first year university’s tuition fee and will only be awarded once.
