It is with deep sadness that Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences has announced the passing away of one of its international students, Ekaterina Zhuravleva.
Ekaterina, from Russia, died in early September at the age of 21 years after an extended illness. She came to study at Wittenborg in December 2016. However, due to her illness she stopped her studies three months later. She was registered for an IBA (Bachelor) in Logistics & International Trade.
Wittenborg extends its condolences to the family. Ekaterina’s tutor, Myra Qiu, said she was a soft-spoken student and very optimistic about her future.
Ekaterina stayed in Wittenborg’s accommodation facilities in Apeldoorn and many students knew her. Before coming to Holland she also studied in Germany and Spain.
