Master's degree at ABS
The academic performance of a student in an undergraduate program plays an important role in the selection of candidates. It is impossible to enter ABS for a master's program without confirming knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing IELTS or TOEFL. The minimum TOEFL score for admission is 80. IELTS — 6 or higher.
The campus of the educational institution is located in Nijmegen. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. University students have access to the library. It contains a collection of scientific papers, textbooks and fiction. Foreigners who come to ABS through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
After graduation, students are allowed to stay in Netherlands for a year. During this time, graduates can find a job and change their student visa to a work one. You can find other options for immigration in our article.
