This pre-Master's programme grants access to the Master's Language, Literature and Education. The programme is only accessible to students with a Dutch or other EU nationality.

Programme

Please note: If you have obtained an academic Bachelor’s degree, you do not need to take the two Academic Skills courses (2 x 6 ECTS), which means that the programme will comprise 30 ECTS instead of 42 ECTS. Below you see the programme of the current academic year; the courses in the coming academic year may differ slightly. The Course Catalogue for the new academic year will be published in May.

You follow one of the programmes below. These variants prepare you for the language you choose within the Master's Language, Literature and Education.

Procedure: register via Studielink

  1. Submit an enrolment request in Studielink for the Master’s Taalwetenschappen / Linguistics 60 EC​
    You cannot enrol directly in the pre-Master’s, but you must follow the application procedure for the Master’s programme. Please complete all of the steps of the application process, including the application in MyInfo and the submission of all of the required application documents. This will ensure that you can automatically be admitted to the Master's in the following academic year.
  2. Wait for the admission decision
    The selection committee will assess your prior education. If you are able to meet the entry requirements for the Master’s by completing the pre-Master’s programme, you will receive a rejection for the Master's and a positive decision for the pre-Master’s.
  3. Submit an enrolment request in Studielink for the pre-Master’s Duitse taal en cultuur, English Language and Culture or Franse taal en cultuur
    Only after you have been (conditionally) admitted to the pre-Master’s do you register for the pre-Master’s in Studielink. If you successfully complete the pre-Master’s programme within a year, you will automatically be admitted to the Master’s Language, Literature and Education.

Application deadline
