Master's Open Day

Twice a year, we organise a Master’s Open Day where you can get to know our programme Cultural History and Heritage. You can join our information session, talk to our students and staff, and find out if this is the Master's for you.

General session for students of Universities of Applied Sciences (HBO)

The Faculty of Humanities will organise a general session for students of Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences who are interested in doing a Master’s programme, in which the main differences between 'hbo' and 'wo' are discussed ('Van hbo naar wo: ervaringen van onze premasterstudenten').  

Next Master's Open Day

The next Master's Open Day will take place on Wednesday 9 October. More information can be found on this webpage or click on the button below to register:
