Post-Study Work Opportunities

Study and post-work employment options

During your studies, you are allowed to work up to 16 hours a week or you can work full-time during your summer holidays. As the foundation programme is quite intensive we usually recommend that students who want to work do so over the summer, instead of during the academic year.


After graduating, you are eligible to stay for one year applying for jobs thanks to The Netherlands' Orientation Year for Graduates Seeking Employment.
