Going Dutch: Essential skills for a career in the Netherlands

Entering the job market after your degree is often challenging. Especially if you are an international student and want to find a job in the Netherlands, you are faced with a number of issues. This is why we set up Going Dutch.

Your Future First

Going Dutch: Essential Skills for a career in the Netherlands is a programme exclusively for international Master’s students. It deals with issues such as:

  • Not speaking Dutch or another European language.
  • Not having a network here.
  • Having little knowledge of the job market.
  • Having to work with colleagues from different cultural backgrounds.

The programme

In 2 workshops, our trainer gives you a comprehensive presentation, paying attention to questions you can submit before and during the workshop. Additionally, our trainer will provide general feedback on your CVs, based on the CVs you and the other participants submit to us.


Going Dutch takes place in both semesters. Depending on demand, there will be more or fewer sessions. Keep an eye on the event calendar and the Career Centre’s Canvas Announcements (enrol in the Canvas course, if you haven’t already).
