Why do a pre-master?
The pre-master is aimed at students who are interested in the master Multilingualism and have a Bachelor’s degree at a HBO level, or a Bachelor diploma in a non-related discipline.
What is the programme like?
The programme consists of three modules: Introduction to Linguistics, Academic Skills I and Academic Skills II: BA thesis. Every course consists of 10 ECTS. This is equivalent to 280 study hours per course. Please do not take this lightly. Through the semester you will be asked to read, (peer)-review, process and produce extensive amounts of content in order to prepare you for the MA Multilingualism. There are no physical contact hours which means you may need more time to figure things out. In order to limit problems in this area a teaching assistant is available by email to assist with any questions there may be regarding the online assignments, uploads or course material.
Course organisation and schedule
The three courses in the pre-master use multiple forms of instruction and assessment; the student will watch videos concerning a variety of topics, write different types of academic texts, and hand in other assignments as described in the detailed instructions. All of these assignments will be gathered in a Blackboard environment. This is also where most of the course materials can be found. Further details about the courses can be provided.
