Studenten uit welgestelde gezinnen hebben meer kans om tijdig hun diploma te behalen dan studenten met ouders die minder te besteden hebben. Dat staat in een groot rapport over de gevolgen van onderwijsbeleid.

A friend pointed out the Connect-project to Russian Konstantin Korotkikh (25). A project that helps foreign UT and Saxion graduates to find a job. ´By then, I had sent two hundred job applications and had done about five job interviews. There was no progress.´ Through the network of Connect, Korotkikh started working at Twentebelt in Hengelo in May. The company is specialised in making metal conveyor belts.
By providing workshops on the Dutch language and culture, trainings on how to do job interviews and a CV-check, co-workers of the Connect project assist foreign UT and Saxion students in their quest in finding a first job in The Netherlands. UT-employee and project coordinator Henk Brouwer explains.
