Your diploma grants you immediate access to many Master programmes taught abroad. Just one of many possible next stops for you: the UNICA-network, the association of universities located in European capitals.

Another smart move to consider: pursuing your academic career in one of the available English taught Master programmes at the Ghent University or the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Moreover, some Dutch taught Master programs are also available to you after completion of the BScSS - given of course that you meet the Dutch language requirements.
