In the USA, no difference is made between HBO and WO, so there can be large differences in level per university. In most cases, athletes with an American bachelor’s degree can transfer directly to a Dutch (or other international) master.
Sometimes it happens that our athletes have to do a pre-master of six months or a year before they can start a university master in the Netherlands (just like a Dutch HBO student).
For us it is very important to know in advance what your academic ambitions are, so that we can find a university that puts you on the right path for your future career!
When it comes to job opportunities, student athletes with American bachelor’s degrees often have an advantage!
