More than 60% of IPM graduates pursue post-graduate qualifications. The majority of students wishing to pursue a master’s degree abroad are able to do so without a bridging course or qualification. However, you need to check with the given institution to determine entry requirements.

You should note that academic universities in the Netherlands require you to follow a pre-master’s programme after graduating from THUAS. Therefore, IPM offers you the opportunity to complete a pre-master’s degree in year three of the IPM programme which then qualifies you to be admitted to the Public Administration master’s degree programme at Leiden University, for example. Do keep in mind that you may need to meet certain grade requirements i.e. an average grade of 7.5.

Specifically, 63% of our IPM graduates pursue a pre-master's and then a master's degree in Public Administration at Leiden University in the Netherlands. Moreover, 8% pursue a master's in International Relations or War and Conflict Studies, 5% in Crisis and Security Management, Cyber/IT studies or Law.
