Master

Your Master’s programme is the last phase of your studies, but also of your life as a student. This year will be over before you know it. You will be kept quite busy with your studies and your thesis, however, you should keep in mind what is on the horizon. You are almost ready for the labour market, so there is nothing stopping you from starting to apply for jobs in advance.
