Information for Employers

Wageningen University & Research has excellent students in the domain of society and well-being, food, feed and bio-based production, natural resources and the living environment. Student Career Services offers the opportunity to meet these talented students, recent graduates and PhD candidates.

In 2019 Wageningen University & Research is ranked as the best university in the Netherlands for the 15th time in a row. The Keuzegids 2019 praised the university's combination of excellent research and education, a combination rarely encountered by the experts.

At the moment most of our Bachelor programs are partially in Dutch and English and all of our Master programs are in English. We have over 100 nationalities on Wageningen Campus. Almost 2/3 of our students do an internship, thesis or exchange program in another country.
