Did you always know what you wanted to do?

During the last years at High School I was very determined to study Business Administration. However, when I started my studies in The Netherlands, it didn’t take long for me to realize that I was not happy with what I was doing. I was really disappointed and knew that I had to find something that I was genuinely interested in: I discovered the Bachelor in Online Culture. This program is exactly what I was looking for. I’m really glad I didn’t force myself to do something that I didn’t like.

Why did you choose to study abroad, and how did you decide to study in the Netherlands?

I always remember myself, wanting to study abroad later on. After finishing High School, I realized that this was my chance to start applying for Universities and deciding for myself. The Netherlands were a great choice for me because apart from the fact that it is affordable, it is also a very welcoming country to all foreign people and students.

What is it like to study completely in English, together with international students? Was the transition from high school difficult?

Studying together with more international students is probably one of the best things I get to experience here. It is always interesting to meet new people and gradually finding out all the differences or similarities our cultures might have. This can also be a great help when you are suddenly in a totally new environment and not in your local High School anymore. This is just another transition in your life but at least you know that some great people will be there to go through this adventure with you.

What sort of teaching styles do you encounter in your program, and can you say something about this?

From my experience so far, I’ve been very happy with all of my professors. What I like most about these classes is that they can be very interactive and that it is always possible to reach the professors and lecturers during breaks, after class, or even via e-mail.

Would you recommend studying abroad to a student who might never have thought about it before?

Never having thought about it before doesn’t mean that you wouldn’t be able to do it. I would definitely recommend to any student to study abroad or even go on exchange. This is an unique and beneficial experience which will broaden your horizons.
