Dutch News reports that almost three out of four students attending an hbo college (hogeschool) are taking courses which offer poor job prospects and almost half should have little expectation of finding a related job, according to a new report on college education.
The college guide was drawn up by the higher education information centre CHOI and looks at the prospects of finding work attached to different courses, broadcaster Nos said.
Information science, management studies, physiotherapy, tourism and communication studies all offer very little prospect of work, the guide states. Architecture, accountancy and art offer a little more hope but all these subjects are popular, leading to a lot of competition between graduates.
The best job opportunities come in science and engineering, the report says. People with an hbo degree in agricultural studies are also likely to find a job easily.
