Every master's programme has a study advisor whom you can consult if you have any questions or need some advise concerning your studies or the things that come along with studying. The study advisor is impartial and everything that is discussed is treated in confidence. He or she can also direct you to help desks and other relevant university facilities.

The university also offers some short courses that can help you to study more effectively, for example Effective Studying or Performance Anxiety Training. You can take these courses at the Students' Service Center (SSC). With these facilities we hope to improve your study pleasure and success.

If you have any questions or doubts about your studies, you can always contact the study advisor. He or she knows all the ins and outs of the programme and personal planning. Study advisors are impartial and everything that is discussed is treated confidentially. They can also help you find the right institutions and student desks for your problems.

  • Testimonial van Mark Doggen

    'Alongside the compulsory course units, the Master's specialization in Information Science offers a lot of space for you to choose electives and focus on what you enjoy most. There are eight elective course units, of which you choose five. I chose Semantic Web Technology, Learning from Data, Computational Semantics, Computer-Mediated Communication and Literature Review. Learning form Data was especially fun, as you get to look at machine learning.

    Besides lectures, you follow a weekly research seminar, where lecturers and students keep each other up to date on the progress of their research. You learn a lot from that, finding out about all the ins and outs of conducting research.

    The programme is also one of the few that include a placement worth 10 ECTS credit points (that’s about 7 weeks’ full-time work). That gives you a good picture of what it’s like to work in a business using the skills you’ve acquired during your degree programme. The final course unit is writing a Master’s thesis on a subject you choose yourself. I found the Master’s specialization in Information Science a valuable addition to my Bachelor’s degree in the same subject, and I would highly recommend it if you’re interested in online technology and word processing.’
