For students

This section of the website is for current students of the Media Technology MSc program.

When starting the Media Technology program, familiarize yourself with the content of this page.

Planning and shaping your own study

The Media Technology calendar shows all events that are officially related to the program, such as the teaching schedule, information meetings, graduation events, etc. It is a Google Calendar and can be linked within your personal calendar app (ICAL, html).

Students must sign up in uSis for examinations, before the examination is scheduled. Note that presentations or paper deadlines also count as examinations. It is advised to sign up for examinations using the course number. See a proper explanation here.

Sometimes students may qualify for course exemption, because they already possess all the skills and knowledge that a compulsory course teaches. Read how exemption works, if you think you qualify.

See our dedicated pages on Accent CoursesElective Courses, and How to Apply for Electives in uSis.

Students that feel the urge to take on additional challenges can consider taking interdisciplinary Master honours classes. These are taken alongside their regular studies, so they do not contribute to the Media Technology graduation.

Studying abroad is a great opportunity for students to broaden their horizons, specialize at international universities, meet international friends, and to build an academic network.

It is possible to study abroad as part of the Media Technology MSc program. However, fitting it within the two years requires forward planning, preparation, and a very pro-active attitude. Visit the university's page on studying abroad, and always contact the study adviser to discuss your plans.
