To work

Are you going abroad to work? Do you want to know the value of your Dutch diploma abroad? Ask for a description of your diploma.

For many Dutch diplomas, diploma descriptions are available. With these descriptions, you can clarify the value of your diploma abroad. This enables foreign employers to better assess the value of your diploma.

What else should you consider?
