Information for companies

Student Career Services offers you the opportunity to get in contact with our talented students. We have excellent students in the domain of society and well-being, food, feed and biobased production, natural resources and living environment.

In 2017 Wageningen University & Research is ranked as the best university in the Netherlands for the 13th time in a row. The Keuzegids 2017 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.

On the website, more information can be found on the Bachelor and Masters study programs.
