Transferring to a Research Master's
Students who show exceptional promise during a regular or professional programme are encouraged to continue their studies in a research programme. Once students are admitted to the research programme, they can transfer credits earned during their previous course of study towards their Research Master's degree. The Examinations Board determines which courses qualify for transfer.
The New Media specialisation within the Media Studies Research Master's programme focuses on the theoretical and methodological study of digital culture. The intensive and selective two-year programme has been developed for students with proven ability in and passion for research.
