Deciding where to Study can be Life-Changing
Have a question about what it’s really like to study in the Netherlands? Then meet Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences’ new Student Ambassadors – who among them speak at least 10 different languages!
The Student Ambassador programme is aimed mainly at prospective students who might have loads of questions before or after they have enrolled. “And who better to answer those questions than students who are already in the Netherlands and have gone through the same experiences as any new student?” said Lena Vandenbosch, Wittenborg’s International Business Development Manager.
"Deciding on where to study can be a life-changing decision. It would be great to give future students the opportunity to personally connect with current students to hear all about the student experience at Wittenborg" Vandenbosch added. The initiative will be led by the Admissions Team.
The student ambassadors are Allegra Zazzaro (Italy), Illia Kupris (Ukraine), Chayan Taldar (India), Ana Liparteliani (Georgia), Kavinga Sandali (Sri Lanka), Matthew Skelhorne (Canada) and Romeissa Laib (Algeria).
What has their experience of the Netherlands and Wittenborg been so far? Kavinga said: "The community at Wittenborg is welcoming and friendly. Settling in here did not take much effort at all!"
Any current student who has been studying in the Netherlands for at least six months is welcome to apply for ambassadorship by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
