Arts degree programmes at University of Groningen best in the Netherlands

10 November 2014

The WO monitor, a Dutch national survey held among recent Master’s graduates, shows that the Arts degree programmes at the University of Groningen score higher than the national average, with a 7.6 mark on a scale of 10. In addition, the Arts degree programmes have been judged second best among all University of Groningen faculties, after the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences.

University of Groningen Arts students go abroad to study or do a placement more often than other Dutch Arts students. This may be why more Arts graduates from the University of Groningen end up living abroad than Arts graduates from other Dutch universities. In addition, more Arts alumni live abroad than alumni from any other faculty of the University of Groningen.

Arts graduates from Groningen take on average three months to land a job and are more often in paid employment than Arts graduates from other Dutch universities.

The WO Monitor is an annual survey conducted among former students to investigate the quality of education and student satisfaction.
