What are the LUMES students doing after graduating?

The students applying and attending the LUMES programme come from a variety of disciplines and have different backgrounds. This makes for a great mix for the transdisciplinarity of the programme. As the students graduate and move on to a working career this variation of disciplines and job sectors continues. After having conducted a short research study on the matter it was found that LUMES graduates work in all sectors of society.


Almost a third of all the gradutes continue with a career within the university sector, either as PhD students or as researchers. Then there is a pretty even spread among the other sectors: NGOs, Governmental sector, and the private business sector.
