“What will I ever use this degree for?” Surviving university is no easy task! Many students panic when they finish their studies because they are not aware of how the countless hours they spent writing papers, taking exams, and giving presentations—sometimes to the point of exhaustion and even burnout—will add up to a paying job and fulfilling career. During university the focus is often on learning about specific topics in your discipline, but not necessarily what to do with this information in the real world. Some of the most sought after and marketable skills are learned in university, yet few students realise just how many transferable skills they are acquiring along the way that are highly desired by employers.

Who should join?

Final year Bachelor students, Master’s students and PhD candidates from all disciplines are welcome to apply. Those that are interested in learning how to make the most out of their time in university and might not realise all the valuable transferable skills they are gaining! Students who would like to know how to apply these skills in the real world in order to have successful careers.

If you have doubts about your eligibility for the course, please contact us via graduatewinterschool@vu.nl.
