New Interest to Study in the Netherlands after the Pandemic
A group of high school students from Ukraine is touring the Netherlands this week, including visits to institutions of higher education like Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences. They got a warm welcome from staff who showed them around the premises at the Apeldoorn campus.
The tour is courtesy of the studying abroad agency, Alekom, which has seen an increase in interest from prospective students in Ukraine to study in the Netherlands in lieu of other popular study destinations like Canada.
Lena Vandenbosch, Witttenborg's International Partnership Manager, said: "The agent who organised the visit told us that since the pandemic, the Netherlands has become the most popular study destination for them as parents prefer their children to study closer to home rather than in countries such as Canada and the US."
According to Vandenbosch the students got a tour of both campuses in Apeldoorn, got a taste of education at Wittenborg by attending a class on Strategic Marketing and were also treated to lunch and walk around Apeldoorn before they left.
