The HBO-Monitor is an annual survey study among recent graduates of Dutch Universities of Applied Sciences (in Dutch: hogescholen/hbo’s), conducted by ROA since the early nineties. It provides a detailed overview of the situation encountered by graduates after leaving education and entering the labour market, and of postgraduate life in general. It also sheds light on the extent to which hbo institutions adequately prepare students for the labour market. For graduates of Fine Arts hbo institutions a specific Fine Arts Monitor (in Dutch: the Kunsten-Monitor) has been developed. The data generated by the HBO-Monitor are available (on request) for scientific research purposes. The data are disseminated by DANS, a data archiving service of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW). More information on the HBO-Monitor and Kunsten-Monitor can be found here
