Choosing a Master’s programme is an important step in shaping your (academic) career.
First of all, you can map your wishes and possibilities. The next step is an orientation on the range of Master’s programmes in the Netherlands or abroad. Consider other options as well, such as finding a job or perhaps arranging an interim year.
Of course, a Master’s programme is about fulfilling your own personal academic interests. A completed Master’s degree, though, is also proof to your future employers that you have the potential to become a fully developed professional.
This page contains information that can help you make a balanced choice.
An increasing number of Master’s programmes select their students through an admissions procedure. This entails setting certain requirements to your Bachelor’s degree, the marks you’ve obtained and the courses you took. In some cases, you’ll even have to submit a cover letter.
Selection deadlines are usually quite early and may vary per Master’s programme.
A Master’s programme may cost quite a lot.
The UvA organises several information events to help you get all the information to choose your Master’s programme with care.
Have you read the info and would you like to consult an adviser? For example about writing a cover letter for your Master’s application, or about how to gain an overview of your own options?
