    Nuanced and Interdisciplinary

    The complex and complementary combination of various modules from the four disciplines provides a unique level of nuance that encourages critical thinking and reflection in a way that other degrees may not. The politics track in particular is very engaging and holistically introduces several sub-disciplines that are useful for navigating the future direction of one’s studies. Overall, although the courses speed by quite quickly due to (very) limited time constraints – the program is well equipped to produce adept and well-rounded students that can both see and engage with several angles of a given problem.

    PPLE: International, Challenging and Rewarding

    The Politics, Psychology, Law and Economics (PPLE) programme at the University of Amsterdam is a challenging, but rewarding programme which enables students to pursue more than one discipline. It provides a holistic understanding of social sciences and teaches students how to interpret the socio-economic structures embedded in our society. Through PPLE students improve their interpersonal and organisational skills, which are applicable in any of the four disciplines (and other fields as well!). Aside from the rigorous academics, the programme is very international and gives lots of opportunities to socialise, join engaging clubs and associations and meet people from various cultures. Perhaps one downside of PPLE is that it limits the extent to which you can focus on a chosen discipline because even after choosing your specialisation you’ll have to learn all four disciplines. So, when applying, really consider whether you’re interested in all four areas of study or if you’d prefer to study only one!

    Good guidance and a lot of contact hours, but focused on academic achievement.

    I’m very happy with my program. It is really refreshing to have a programme that is interdisciplinary but still allows you to go into depth. The only thing I wish was that we could study abroad more easily / do a minor more easily because now you are risking a study delay.

    I like the interdisciplinary aspect and the fact that everything is interconnected. Most of the courses are well designed and most tutors and lecturers are amazing. The university itself is located in a beautiful place.

    Overall great study environment

    UvA boasts a great campus and good instructors. The students are motivated and together create a cooperative learning environment where they are encouraged not just to pursue their academic and professional interests but to network amongst each other, also. As Amsterdam is a very international city, UvA is a very international school and it can happen that in a class of fifteen people, you will have fifteen different nationalities. The study program PPLE, while competitive, seems to provide students with many bases from which they can advance their post-university lives.

    Great overall content, lacks organization skills

    Overall the program is pretty small scale, which makes it targeted towards individuals. Tutorial groups are small and it’s easy to get to know your peers and teacher; this also creates a comfortable environment to study in. The course material is rather diverse and tailored every year which helps it stay up to date. The program expects you to put in extra hours, and as long as you do that, you will manage to keep up with the material. The organization, however, may be improved. More attention could be paid to students’ individual issues and how those are reflected in the study; better course coordination.

    The programme is well-rounded and has a lot to offer. It deals with different issues controversial and otherwise, and teaches a lot about analytical thinking. However, the workload can feel excessive at times.

    Hard work pays off!

    Though it’s a very tough course with more workload than a regular course, I genuinely feel like I’ve made the right choice studying PPLE because it really helps see the connections between the four disciplines. The tutors and professors are, in general, very understanding of the stress of the course and they’re usually approachable and try to help out where they can. Having PPLE on your resume also looks really good šŸ˜‰
