Bachelor 3

The last year of your Bachelor's programme has arrived! This year, you will be taking a course on the humanities and applying for a job is the focus of the second part of this course. You might also do an internship or study abroad. It is highly likely that you will make a decision about your Master’s studies in this year as well.
