Continue your studies

More than 60% of IPM graduates go on to post-graduate courses. If you’re hoping to take an international master’s degree, you should be able to do so without a bridging qualification.
However, its best to check your chosen institution’s entry requirements.

Please note that academic universities in the Netherlands require a pre-master’s programme after graduating from the hands-on IPM degree. You can follow in the footsteps of 63% of our graduates and complete a pre-master’s degree in year three to pursue the Public Administration masters at Leiden University. Bear in mind that you may need to meet certain grade requirements, for example, an average grade of 7.5.

Other graduates go on to master’s degrees in subjects like International Relations or War and Conflict Studies (8%), Crisis and Security Management (5%), Cyber/IT studies or Law.
