The average age of a PhD student in the Netherlands is 29, an overwhelming majority are women - and 40 percent are foreigners, according to new research by careers magazine Intermediair (IM).

The survey indicates that at 13.7 percent, the unemployment rate among PhD graduates is seven times higher than that of university graduates as a whole. And those who have found a job are not always enthusiastic. Over one-third are negative or neutral about their work.

On the other hand, 45 percent said they are happy with their salaries. Only 8 percent said they would have done something completely different and not taken a PhD if they could make their choice again.
