"My choice for studying the Research Master was definitely motivated by PhD-career related arguments. At the time I applied for this Master, I already held a regular Masters’ title in Public Administration. Choosing this particular program allowed me to deepen my sociological knowledge on societal processes such as individualization and social/cultural stratification while at the same time expanding my methodological knowledge. Furthermore, the excellent reputation of this Master played a role in my decision to apply for this programme. The programme is repeatedly awarded a Top Rated certificate for excellence by the ‘Keuzegids Masters’.  

A tip for current Research Master students is to focus your Master’s thesis on a topic you also want to pursue your PhD in. Being able to demonstrate your affinity with a particular research topic will help you tremendously in the application procedure for pursuing a PhD position on that same topic."
