Research is important for THUAS. Curiosity is part of our DNA and this is why we are always looking for relevant questions and new answers in our field. We do that in close collaboration with professionals from qualified practices and stakeholders from the wider society.
The THUAS Alumni Network is the perfect informal way to expand your network. It is both worthwhile and relevant when looking for your first job or making a career move. We already have more than 80,000 alumni worldwide in our network, which is not only enormous and valuable, but also offers a wide range of knowledge and experience.
Here you will find more than 16 million internship and job opportunities at international companies in the Netherlands and abroad. The GoinGlobal database is updated daily.
Looking for an easy and efficient way to job hunt? THUAS recently partnered up with Joblift, a search engine with more than 300,000 jobs from more than 100 partner job boards.
Prospective and current students can find answers to any of their questions at our Study & Career Centre (SCC). Prospective students can find out more about our degree programmes on Open Days and at the various information fairs. They can experience what a degree programme ‘feels like’ by shadowing or taking part in an Orientation Programme. And of course the SCC is available to provide consultations or workshops to help them make their choice. The SCC is also the first port of call for current students with questions. By providing information materials, tests, assessments and advice, the SCC assists students in making their study or career choices.
THUAS partners with DUWO Accommodate, specialists in student accommodation. DUWO has around 400 furnished rooms in close proximity to the main campus available for new international students.
All the rooms are fully furnished. Depending on the type of room, you may have your own kitchen, shower and toilet, or you may share a kitchen, shower, toilet, and other common areas with one or more students of THUAS. A bed linen set and a basic kitchen inventory package will be waiting for you upon arrival.
