What do students think?

Coming out of her shell

“I’ve learned that in a professional environment, if you don’t speak up for your problem or question, people won’t be able to help you. So, I came out of my shell. And it’s great to have a positive influence on the people around you.” Read more...

Learning to be independent

“I needed some time to adjust. But I made friends easily. It comes with a good aura. People would approach me and talk to me. I invited some of them to my house, cooked Jamaican food and we also did other fun things together.” Read more...

Unique experience

“The lecturers teach you, they do their part, but you also have a responsibility of managing your own stuff. Lecturers are always ready to support their students. Even if it is not their task.” Read more...

Campus facilities

Dutch way of learning

The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at Dutch universities like HAN, you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions. To give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative. And to discover things for yourself.
