The Master's in Communication Science scores far above average for scientific education. The programme also received above-average scores on testing, teaching, studyability and supervision.

Students enrolled in the master's programme Social and Cultural Anthropology are especially satisfied with the challenge of the education and the internationalisation of the programme. Furthermore, the master scores well on programme, testing, teachers and guidance. Programme director Ellen Bal: “We are, of course, very happy with this positive feedback from our students. Each year, we try to organise a stimulating and engaging learning environment. This year, this was extra challenging in the face of all corona restrictions. Our teachers and students have done a great job.”


Each year, the Keuzegids is partly based on the National Student Survey (NSE). However, there was no National Student Survey in 2020 due to the corona crisis. The Keuzegids therefore used the results and assessments from the 2019 NSE.
