The COVID-19 pandemic has had a great impact on the lives of young hbo graduates. This is evident from a longitudinal study by the Research Centre for Education and the Labour Market (ROA), which examined the impact of COVID-19 on the lives of young graduates from the university of applied sciences (hbo) at three points in time. The study shows that the specific vulnerabilities of young adults during the pandemic became readily apparent. In particular, the long lockdown in the second half of 2020 and the first half of 2021 significantly disrupted the work and personal lives of many students.
