Educational Sciences at Utrecht University

EXPLORE THE COMPLEXITY OF COGNITIVE AND SOCIAL LEARNING PROCESSES

 

Do you want to disentangle and understand the complex interaction of development, education, and learning? Are you curious about how processes in educational contexts relate to the cognitive and social development of children, youth, and adults? The Master’s programme in Educational Sciences: Learning in Interaction invites you to tackle these topics and more.

 


Education can sometimes be dull and ineffective. We can change that through recognising and developing the concept that we never learn alone. We always learn by interacting with someone or something, such as:
People who are more knowledgeable than us  (teachers or more advanced fellow students)
People who are equally knowledgeable as us (peers or in teams)
Artefacts (the environment around us, books, computers, etc.)

 


If you’re interested in learning about and carrying out high-quality research into these interactions, you can make a real difference in learning, teaching, and instruction.

Educational Sciences at Utrecht University: Admission Requirements

The Admissions Committee strives to admit around 20 suitable applicants per year. This Master’s programme has the following entry requirements:

 

  • An academic Bachelor's degree in Social or Behavioural Sciences, in an area that is relevant for the programme such as educational sciences, pedagogical sciences, educational or cognitive psychology, learning sciences, knowledge engineering, or in a specific discipline with interest in pedagogical content knowledge or pedagogy. Our International Students Admission’s office will verify whether a non-Dutch academic degree is equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree at a Dutch research university. All international Bachelor’s degrees are evaluated based on standards set by the NUFFIC. If your degree is assessed as less than equivalent to a 3-year Dutch research University degree, or as a bachelor from a university of applied sciences, you are most likely not eligible for admission.
  • A minimum average grade of 7.5 in the Dutch system or an international equivalent. Students with an average grade between 7.0 and 7.5 will be also be considered for admission, if they can compensate for this lower average with other capacities they possess. It is for the Admissions Committee to decide if this compensation will suffice.
  • Sufficient academic knowledge and skills in methods and statistics.
  • Motivation that fits the aim of this programme.
