General information

Information provision

The HBO Monitor is a long-term research among graduates in the HBO. About one and a half years after graduation the graduates are approached to participate in the questionnaire. Among others, this questionnaire provides insights in how they think about their HBO-study, about their labour market position and to which extend they possess the competences necessary for their jobs. For the fine arts studies, a specific Fine Arts-Monitor has been developed. The data from the HBO-monitor can be specified almost endlessly. For example, they can be specified to study tracks, study clusters and institutes, but also to fulltime/part-time, dual students and specifications over time. This rich information can be used for counseling, quality care and benchmarking.
