  • Working in a diverse, fun, and driven team in an international environment. 


Here's how you will make a difference

No education experience? No problem!  

You will be assigned a buddy and get an onboarding programme (6-18 months) that is fully tailored to your needs. You will start by shadowing more experienced colleagues and have the opportunity to obtain your certificate of adequate pedagogic preparation.  Did you know that our lecturers get to spend part of their working time and a generous budget on their own substantive and personal development?

  • Discounts on various facilities, such as books, cultural courses, soft- and hardware and a number of insurances.
