Important information for graduating students about starting MA programmes at UM

ONLY RELEVANT FOR GRADUATING STUDENTS

When the pandemic started in March 2020, we all hoped everything would return to normal soon. Unfortunately, the coronavirus has been haunting our societies to this day and we have all been finding ways to cope with the limitations needed to protect our societies. Many of our students have been following online education at FASoS for over a year now. We understand that this has been challenging and we applaud the way in which you have all adapted to the changing circumstances so well.

We know that many of you would like to continue studying after your bachelor’s and have applied for master’s programmes at UM. At the same time, we know that some of you are struggling to pass all your bachelor’s courses in this online teaching environment. For this reason, UM has decided to allow graduating students to make use of the ‘zachte knip’ policy, i.e. more lenient diploma requirements for starting a master’s programme at UM.

Please read below what this means for you.
