Where & When?
Masterlanguage education takes place at one of the participating universities. That could be your home university, but sometimes you will have to travel to a different city. Luckily, in the Netherlands, no city is ever really far away! If you are not in possession of a student travel product, you can get reimbursed for your travel expenses.
Masterlanguage courses always take place on Fridays; that way, classes are easy to schedule for everyone involved.
