Application and admission

Before you apply for the Master’s programme in Communication Science, we ask that you check the entry requirements and read the application instructions carefully. A specific application procedure will apply to you, depending on your previous education. Students applying for September intake must obtain their diploma before 1 September. For February intake, students must obtain their diploma before 1 February. In case a student does not yet have a hard copy of their diploma, a declaration of graduation will suffice (until a hard copy of the official diploma can be issued and sent to us). 

If you have any further questions, please read our FAQ through the button below. If that did not answer your question you can reach out to admissions-cs@uva.nl.
