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.
