After your studies

After finishing your studies in Holland, you have many options.

You may want to stay and continue studying here, maybe leave for another country or find a job in Holland.

Your Dutch diploma

Once you have received a Dutch diploma, Nuffic can provide a description of its approximate value. The description will give specific information about your study programme and an explanation of the Dutch education system.

In addition, the diploma description will provide an indication of which national diploma your diploma compares to. It will provide a clear insight into your degree for your future employer outside Holland, thereby increasing your chances of finding a job.

Even if you want to continue your studies in another country, the diploma description will be useful as an overview of your previous education for your education institution.
