Marijke heads our language policy section. That means orchestrating the vital role Taalcentrum-VU plays in implementing VU Amsterdam’s policy on language skills and standards. Her remit covers the university’s Dutch and English language tests for first-year students and the C1 qualification for VU lecturers who teach in English, alongside a wide range of training courses for support staff. Marijke likes to recharge her batteries at lunchtime with a Vietnamese bánh mì. A little taste of her adventures in the Far East, where she lived and worked for a year, savouring new flavours and picking up the local lingo.
