Career Platform (lancering medio augustus)

Your career starts here

The career advisers at the UvA Student Careers Centre can help you with information, workshops and individual vocational counselling to find out what you want, get insight into your capabilities and competences, make choices and improve your application skills in order to achieve your goals.

With an increasing number of international students each year, the UvA can truly call itself an international university. UvA graduates from all over the world find their way to interesting careers, whether in the Netherlands or abroad. The Student Careers Centre is specialised in advising international (non-Dutch) UvA graduates about job seeking in the international labour market.
