About EAN

Since its founding in 2018, EAN has been dedicated to supporting newcomers in their integration in the Netherlands and providing them with skills needed to build new lives.


English Academy for Newcomers is a young NGO, based in Utrecht and supported by the Applied Linguistics team at Utrecht University. Our friendly, multicultural team of volunteers is on a mission to increase the prospects of newcomers with a refugee background in the Dutch higher education system and job market.


We believe that economic independence and full participation in society improve newcomer wellbeing and subsequently add value to their communities.

We help newcomers achieve their full potential through a range of services, such as affordable education and mentorship programs.
