Hello there! I’m Niklas and enrolled in the Communication Science Research Master’s programme here at the UvA.
Although I’m German, I spent the last five years studying, working and living in Hong Kong, Vienna and Seoul, and I’m now settled in the magnificent city of Amsterdam. While my academic passions range from political communication to globalisation and emotional intelligence, this vibrant city and the diverse environment at UvA offer me a perfect place to grow and explore.
 
As the UvA is an international hub it can at times get chaotic, but never boring. However, if you are losing overview or simply have some questions about the Communication Science Master’s, I’d love to help you out. No matter if you want to know about the academics, the environment or life outside the campus, I’m sure I got some answers for you.

Hi! I am Kärt from Estonia (and yes, that’s a girl name)! I am currently studying in the pre-Master’s programme for Communication Science at the UvA to continue with the Master's in Political Communication. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Communication from the University of Tartu (Estonia) dating 4 years back, so I had plenty of time to choose the best univesity and programme for myself!

Choosing the right university and Master’s programme is an important decision. If you are facing this decision right now and if you are considering the University of Amsterdam as your future university to obtain a Master's in Communication Science, you can turn to me with questions. I would be glad to answer any questions you have about the Communication Science programmes at the UvA, the academic environment here or even more generally, student life in Amsterdam.
