What is it like to study Communication Science? You can meet with current students in person or through Skype to talk about their personal experiences in studying Communication Science and their student life in Amsterdam.
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 six years studying, working and living in Hong Kong, Vienna and Seoul, and now I’m 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 track of the options 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.
Hey everyone, I'm Timothy, and I am currently doing my Research Master's in Communication Science at the University of Amsterdam. I am from Germany, but I already did my Bachelor's at the UvA in the PPLE Program (Politics, Psychology, Law, and Economics). Therefore, I have lived here for multiple years already. After my first three years in this beautiful city, I decided that I don't want to leave and stay for my Master's.
It took me a lot of time and many conversations to figure out what I want to study. I was undecided until the very end, but I am happy where I ended up. Having gone through this painful decision-making process myself already, maybe I can make yours easier. If you have any questions about the Communication Science Masters, or about studying in Amsterdam in general, please feel free to contact me!
