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 core of the bachelor’s program in Dutch studies at Freie Universität Berlin.

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 do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The research-oriented master’s program in „Dutch studies in international context“ 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 literature. MA-students may choose an optional specialization in literary studies or linguistics within the program.
