Brush-up course

During the first year of the study, financial calculation and numeracy skills  appear to be a stumbling block for many students. To increase your chances of successfully completing the propaedeutic phase, Breda University of Applied Sciences - in cooperation with ‘Hogeschoolrekenen’ - offers an online brush-up course in (financial) calculation.

The entry test

Do the test and see if your numeracy skills match the required entry level of the Year 1 (propeadeutic phase) at Breda University of Applied Sciences. You will match our entry level if 75% of your answers in level 3 (financial calculation) are correct. If your score is lower, we recommend you to buy the online course and complete this course before you start your study programme at Breda University of Applied Sciences. After finishing the test, you will receive the result immediately.

The course

The course is fully online. You will work individually, at your own pace, and the emphasis is on ‘doing’. The course has three levels: basic calculation, applied calculation and financial calculation. You will earn the certificate if you make no more than 2 mistakes in the tests of levels 1 and 2, and if 75% of your answers in the level 3 test are correct.
