AUAS alumni find a job quickly

15 Apr 2019 09:09 | Communication

The HBO Monitor 2018 shows that 89% of Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) alumni successfully found a job within three months of graduation. This is an increase of 3% compared to 2017.

The HBO Monitor is the annual nationwide survey of graduates of higher professional education (HBO level), conducted approximately 18 months after their graduation.

High expectations

The professional field in the Amsterdam metropolitan area has high expectations of our alumni and also on the quality of our education. The AUAS has therefore set a goal for 2020: at least 85% of AUAS alumni will find a job within three months of graduating. This goal was already obtained in 2017, when 86% of graduates gained employment within three months.

Alumni satisfaction

The annual HBO Monitor research provides insights into, for example, the labour-market preparedness of graduates, the extent to which their studies have prepared them for employment and it also gives an indication of recent graduates’ satisfaction with their degree programme. The research is conducted by the ROA at Maastricht University (Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market).
