Extra opportunities

For students looking for an extra challenge in addition to their Master's, there are several options. 


If you choose to specialise in a specific language during your Master’s, Masterlanguage can be an interesting option for you. Masterlanguage is a national course catalogue focussed on German, English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch and the classical languages (Greek & Latin). The courses are  in the relevant target language (except Greek and Latin) and will be taught by (Assistant-) Professors from:

  • Rijksuniversiteit Groningen
  • Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen
  • Universiteit Leiden
  • Universiteit Utrecht
  • Universiteit van Amsterdam
  • Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam

You can choose from a selection of their courses (see Courses). Course information, admission requirements and registration information can be found on the Masterlanguage website (in Dutch).

Apart from the regular course catalogue, Masterlanguage also offers lectures and masterclasses. This allows you to meet teachers (with different expertise) and language students from all over the Netherlands.

Interdisciplinary honours programmes

You can choose from three of the university wide honours programmes below. In these interdisciplinary programmes you will work on varying social and academic issues together with students from other disciplines. By analysing issues from different angles you learn how you can navigate in current complex societies at a broad and connecting level. After completing these honours programmes you will receive an honours certificate during a festive ceremony.
