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.

Hi! I’m Jack, originally from Scotland, and I am currently studying my Master’s at the University of Amsterdam! I studied a BA (Hons) in Journalism before working as a journalist and, eventually, moving to Amsterdam to study first the Pre-Master's programme and, now, the Master’s in Political Communication. Moving to Amsterdam and studying here at the UvA has added some great new experiences to my existing skills.

For me, however, choosing the correct Master’s programme was a long and difficult process, filled with some doubt and, I’m pretty sure, at least one coin toss. If you’d rather not leave it up to chance and would like to know more about Communication Science, the UvA or just life in Amsterdam then please contact me!
