Admission

If our programme excites you, we will be happy to receive your application. The minimum requirements are a bachelor degree, and proficiency in English. The latter can be demonstrated by for instance a first degree in English, IELTS Academic score 6.5, or Dutch secondary education HAVO 8 or VWO 7.5. Work experience in the museum and heritage sector is strongly preferred.

Given the high student demand for a programme with only 20 to 22 spaces, we follow a rigorous selection process based on individual quality and group diversity. Applications are assessed twice a year. The first ten students will be selected in March, and the remaining spots will be filled in May.

To apply, please register at Studielink. You will be requested to upload the following:

  • An admission assignment: write a short paper by visiting a monument or museum / heritage institution of your choice. Reflect on it in terms of its relevance for present-day society using three sources, including at least one academic publication and one publication by an international body such as UNESCO, ICOM, or ICOMOS. Illustrate the paper with your own photos and make sure to use academic referencing. (1500 words).
  • A motivation letter explaining why you think this is the best programme for you given your career goals, interests and museum and heritage experience (ca. 1000 words)
  • Your completed application form (which you will receive after registration)
  • Your CV
  • A scan of your passport
  • A passport-sized photograph
  • Scans of your relevant academic certificates
  • Proof of English proficiency – if required.
  • Optional: An example of your academic writing (bachelor’s thesis, published article, etc.)

Carefully consider your use of AI for your application documents, as it may influence to which extent the admissions committee can assess your academic knowledge and skills.

The submission deadlines are 1 March and 1 May. After submission, students with sincere and complete applications will be invited for an online interview. We will let you know the result of your application within approximately 3 weeks.
