Frequently asked questions

  • Can I still decide during the pre-Master to change to another track?

    Yes you can. All tracks have the same entry requirements. After completing the Pre-Master, you can choose a track again in Studielink.

    Note: this does not apply to the Research Master. If you have doubts about taking the Research Master, please contact the study adviser as soon as possible (not only after the pre-Master).

  • I have completed "name of a study programme", do I have to do a pre-Master first?

    That is always viewed and assessed per person. If you want to be sure, sign up. The admission officers will let you know if you need to do a pre-Master. Three things are considered:

    • Do you have knowledge of the most important theories in communication science?
    • Do you have knowledge in statistics?
    • Do you know how to write an empirical paper?

    If you answered “no” to one of the questions, chances are that you will have to follow (part of) the pre-Master.

  • What are my job opportunities when I finish the Political Communication Master's programme?

    The track provides the basis for editorial, policy, advisory and research positions in the media sector, government, politics, civil-society organisations and the commercial world. 

    Graduates can be found working as:

    • spokespersons 
    • information officers 
    • PR managers 
    • journalists
    • documentary makers
    • communication consultants for numerous organisations ranging from local municipalities to the European Union and from non-governmental organisations to ministries.
    • PhD positions and academic research jobs
