Learning Problems and Impairments

The master’s degree programme Education and Child Studies is an academic, not a vocational programme. It offers research-based knowledge about education and child development.

Applicants need to meet the following entry requirements:

  • possess the skills, understanding and knowledge that are required for earning the bachelor’s degree in Education and Child Studies (Leiden University). This includes both substantive knowledge about education and child development and training in academic research methods and statistics;
  • have earned the bachelor’s degree at a university not being a university of professional education, or demonstrate to meet the requirements for such a degree.

 

Language requirements

Students should be sufficiently proficient in the language of instruction. Required for master’s specialisations in English is

  • a TOEFL score of at least
    • 600 (paper based)
    • 250 (computer based)
    • 100 (internet based) or
  • an IELTS test of at least level 7
  • writing proficiency in English at the pre-university education level.

The tests and/or certificates that are accepted by Leiden University as proof of the required level of English proficiency are part of the International Code of Conduct and therefore legally binding; no exceptions can be made.

This requirement does not apply for students who have completed their education in Canada, USA, UK, Ireland, New Zealand or Australia, or students who are in possession of an international baccalaureate.
