For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent university degree with at least 60 credit points corresponding to the program Nederlandse taal en cultuur at Universiteit van Amsterdam or the core of the bachelor’s program in Dutch studies at Freie Universität Berlin.

The admission is limited.

The DSH - or German Language University Entrance Exam for Foreign Students - is obligatory for all applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German.

Students of Freie Universität Berlin are not required to pay any fees for the obligatory semester abroad at the Universiteit van Amsterdam. Students who wish to acquire a double degree are currently required to pay fees of around 750 Euro for the fourth semester at the Universiteit van Amsterdam.

Organized in conjunction with the Universiteit van Amsterdam, the research-oriented master’s program in comparative Dutch studies broadens students’ knowledge of Dutch linguistics and literary studies acquired in the bachelor’s program. Questions and issues of Dutch studies are placed in a European and international context. Students will acquire research-relevant methodological and analytical competence for engaging with the Dutch language and Dutch-speaking culture.
