What do we do?

Our team of study choice and career advisers offers professional guidance at key moments in your (academic) career.

How do we do this?

Every day we conduct individual meetings with students, provide training courses and workshops, and hold informational sessions as part of degree programmes. In addition, we organise major career events such as the UvA Career Day, while various digital tools are also developed, including the UvA Job Board. We also provide support for structuring career guidance within degree programmes of the university.

Why do we do this?

We feel it is important that besides your academic development, you also gain understanding of your talents, interests and motivation, so that you can make choices confidently, familiarise yourself with the job market; and develop the skills you need to find or create work that suits you (career employability).

Knowledge and experience

We have many years of experience providing guidance to university students faced with important choices: whether regarding their Bachelor’s, a minor, an internship or exchange, a Master’s or concerning their first steps in the job market. We have an in-depth understanding of the various degree programmes, entry requirements, programme contents, pre-Master’s programmes and job market sectors. Precisely because we speak to students from every degree programme, we know the job market inside and out, from the legal profession to cultural institutions, from multinationals to start-ups. Our relationship with the regional business world and beyond means that we are up to date on what the job market demands of starting professionals.
