Master's Open Day

Twice a year, we organise a Master’s Open Day where you can get to know our programme New Media & Digital Culture. 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)

Utrecht University 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 ('Doorstuderen na het hbo: ervaringen van onze premasterstudenten').
