After your bachelor
After your graduation in Creative Media and Game Technologies you can decide whether to find a job or carry on studying - at master's level.
- Labour market prospects
In Keuzegids HBO 2016 (an independent guide containing a systematic quality comparison of study programmes in higher education) you can find an indication of the labour market prospects for recent graduates (average starter salaries and unemployment rates among recent graduates). Graduates of the Creative Media and Game Technologies / International Game Architecture and Design programme earn a starter salary of approximately € 2,100 a month before tax. Some 87% of the graduates have found a job at bachelor's level. You most likely start in assistant's positions and work your way up to higher positions, such as lead designer, lead programmer, art director or producer, to name a few.
The games industry has an urgent need for high-quality specialists. When you enter the labour market, you will see that employers are not so much interested in degrees, but in practical results.
When applying for a job, you could be selected based on the portfolio which you will compile throughout your study.
