The Master's in Language, Literature and Education prepares you for a broad range of career opportunities.

Teacher Training

After having completed the Master's Programme, graduates can apply for a post-Master teacher training programme. Organised by the Graduate School of Child Development and Education (or equivalent programmes such as Trainees in Onderwijs), the post-Master enables you to obtain a grade-one teacher qualification. You will need to be proficient in Dutch to enrol in these programmes.

The Job Market

Students who already have a teaching qualification may improve their chances on the educational job market after the completion of the Master’s Language, Literature and Education.

Although the programme is geared towards students who want to continue in education, you will gain a valuable foundation for a variety of professions. In the courses and the internship, students develop excellent writing and public speaking skills that will benefit them in a wide variety of professional contexts. Graduates will be able to pursue a career in an advisory capacity at educational organisations or the media.

An Academic Career

Graduates may also opt to apply for a PhD position at the UvA, another Dutch university or a university abroad. If you are interested in pursuing an academic career, it is advisable to discuss the possibility of joining the two-year Research Master’s programme in Literary Studies or Linguistics and Communication at the UvA.

Your diploma is not a farewell

After graduating, you don't have to say goodbye to the University of Amsterdam! We are happy to help you develop your career. You can join the young alumni programme, which will assist you in mapping out your career. And as an alumnus, you can also still use the Student Careers Centre.
