Professor Guda van Noort and student James Trusler talk about courses, students and misunderstandings about the Persuasive Communication Master's track.
Myrthe did the Master’s Persuasive Communication. Now, she is working as a public relations advisor.
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).
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:

This high-level Master’s prepares you for a variety of jobs creating broad employability:
Starting a second Bachelor's program (incl. the short-track Bachelor's program) after completing a higher professional education program can result in high study costs. If you already completed your higher professional education, you will have to pay the institutional rate. Participation in the HBO follow-on minor during your HBO study, on the other hand, can give you an advantage in your study costs later on. So make sure you get a good look at the study costs you will have to deal with via the Duo website, via the Tuition Fee Calculator or the Central Student Service Desk.
With a Bachelor’s degree obtained at a university of applied sciences (HBO) you are not directly accepted to the master's program in Communication Science. You need a Bachelor's degree in Communication Science for this. If your HBO study is related to Communication Science at the UvA, you may be able to take the short-track Bachelor's programme at the College of Communication first to meet the criteria and then re-apply. This short-track Bachelor’s (verkorte Bachelor) is taught in English and Dutch.
