There are many, many degree programmes and many, many possibilities with regard to the job market. Although some degree programmes focus on professional practice and others on research, all programmes offer you room to choose your own path. How can you reach the position that is right for you?
Information, advice and training
Utrecht University considers it important to give students (and graduates within 1 year after graduation) guidance in this respect, and does so in a number of ways. You can get information and advice related to your specialisation from your faculty. Some faculties devote explicit attention to how the job market should be approached. In addition, Student Services offers training related to career orientation and job application skills; examples include writing an application letter and CV and conducting a job interview.
