After you Bachelor’s programme
You could look for a job directly after your Bachelor studies. This could represent the end of your academic career or just a break before continuing onto a Master’s programme at a later date. University Bachelor’s degrees have a different profile to Bachelor’s degrees from universities of applied science (Hbo). In addition to knowledge and experience, a university Bachelor’s programme also teaches academic skills, whereas a Hbo Bachelor’s programme teaches more practical skills. 

Master’s programmes
Employers tend to prefer academics with a full Master’s degree and a well-defined profile. Most student choose to do a Master’s programme after obtaining their Bachelor’s degree. In the menu on the left you can see:

  • which Master’s programmes/specialisation are available after each study programme;
