DURING YOUR STUDIES

Most ISS students have never been to the Netherlands before. Others may only have limited knowledge of the life in this country. We are aware that some of you may feel a bit lost at the beginning of your stay here. In order to help you adapt quickly to life in the Netherlands, at the beginning of each academic year we organize a special introduction programme.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

ISS students are young and mid-career professionals who often return to their previous job or make a career move after completing their studies. ISS alumni work in NGOs, governments, universities and international organizations such as the UN and World Bank.

ISS also carries out career workshops and uses a number of tools to help students find work after graduation.
