More students are switching university for their Master's.
Ab Groen, Director of Corporate Education & Research, thinks the introduction of the Bachelor-Master structure is now finally having an effect. The universities are also getting better at promoting their Master's programmes. Groen expects to see further increases in the mobility of students after their Bachelor's degrees. 'Students are becoming more flexible, in part thanks to their extensive social networks.'
More than a quarter of the Wageningen students who pack their bags after their BSc opt for Utrecht University. Nijmegen and the VU University Amsterdam are also fairly popular. Last year, the most popular Wageningen MSc programmes among students from other universities were Forest and Nature Conservation (14), International Development (13) and Animal Sciences (10). The overview does not include the inflow from foreign institutions, which is larger.
