The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.
Earning a Master requires two years of education after earning a Bachelor. This advanced degree may help students to achieve their educational and professional goals, as the rigors of a Master’s program help train students in the skills and knowledge they need to land the career of their dreams.

The fashion industry has already proven that creativity and commerce fit together effortlessly, but this development needs to be evaluated critically from a historical and theoretical perspective. The Creative Industries Master's degree, which is unique to the Netherlands, provides you with the tools to do just that.... [-]
The programme is organised by the Centre of Language Studies with communication specialists from Radboud University and from the University of Tilburg working closely together. [+]
The programme is unique because language and communication are treated as a single unit with each field complementing the other.

As the programme is in collaboration with Tilburg University you can also follow some lectures there. In the first semester of the first year, you are able to explore the different research fields in language and communication that are focused upon in Nijmegen and Tilburg. In the rest of the programme you will specialise in one of these fields and you will integrate in one of the research groups in Nijmegen or Tilburg.... [-]

Master's programme in Comparative Politics, Administration and Society (COMPASS). In this programme, you either opt for a master in Public Administration or in Political Science. COMPASS helps you to develop the skills needed for working in contemporary government. [+]
International institutions such as the UN, the EU and the IMF have grown in importance. Public policies are less and less the responsibility of a single government, but often involve several layers of government (local, regional, national, international) and different types of actors (governments, non-profit organisations, businesses). Consequently, governing has become more complex. COMPASS (Comparative Politics, Administration, and Society) helps you to develop the skills needed for working in contemporary government. The degree awarded for completing COMPASS is either a Master’s degree (MSc) in Public Administration or in Political Science.
Key featuresComparative focus: the courses address themes of current significance to governance in Europe and elsewhere, drawing on experiences from different countries and teaching the analytical skills necessary for devising effective solutions for the challenges facing society. Small-scale, interactive teaching: we believe that a personal approach can only be achieved by limiting the number of students and using interactive teaching methods that allows you to actively shape the course meetings. Room for individual specialization: there is space in the programme to choose an elective course as well as the topic of the Master’s thesis. This allows you to develop your own profile and strengthen your career prospects. ... [-]
