Work experience part of study
Nothing compares with the learning experience of an internship in the real world itself! During the two internship periods that are part of your study programme, you’ll get a real taste of the business world outside school. At least one internship needs to be done abroad Often the second internship is an important step towards finding your first job after graduation!
You will be studying in mixed classes, with both Dutch and international students from all over the world. We have an international student population, with more than 100 different nationalities. HU also has an international teaching staff. During your study you will have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester and go abroad for your work placement.
Individual supervision and coaching
Due to small classes you will experience sufficient individual supervision. Coaches help you with your study or personal problems, work placement preparation or study planning. In the first year you will also have a personal buddy coach who helps you find your way around HU and in the city.
HU offers special programmes for motivated and talented students. You will have the opportunity to extend your knowledge and study particular areas in greater depth. You can do this by completing the full Honours Programme, or by following an additional course or an additionally challenging internship.
For students with a pre university high school diploma (A-level), IBMS offers a three year fast track programme. Whilst still offering two internships and the possibility to study abroad, this programme leads to a Bachelor degree within three years, instead of four years.
