Wittenborg Remains Popular Among Prospective Students in Türkiye

Wittenborg Representatives Attend the StudyExpo International Education Fair in Türkiye 

In a bid to offer prospective students a glimpse into Wittenborg's diverse educational programmes, Senior Communications Manager Sinem Dosdogru and Admissions Administrator Amin Nadervandi recently took part in the StudyExpo International Education Fair in Istanbul and Izmir.

From 24 to 27 February, a variety of schools from over 30 countries, including the United States, Germany, Australia, and South Africa, attended the fair. Notably, Wittenborg stood out as the only representative from the Netherlands.

Dosdogru and Nadervandi interacted with a crowd exceeding well over 250 people, all eager to explore study options in the Netherlands. Dosdogru said, "We had the longest queue from beginning to end of the fair, both days. It was remarkable."

Nadervandi noted the unique position Wittenborg held as the sole Dutch business school present, attracting significant interest from individuals and students aspiring to study in the Netherlands. He quipped, "We didn't take any coffee breaks due to the continuous flow of visitors queuing in front of our stand."

Dosdogru shared anecdotes of prospective students' enthusiasm, such as a group of five friends keen to study abroad together and a family with twins, both eager to pursue studies in the Netherlands.

She also answered common queries surrounding housing, language preferences and visa processes, underlining Wittenborg's commitment to providing comprehensive support.  

"Prospective students were appreciative of the fact that Wittenborg guarantees accommodation to new students in Apeldoorn. Many postgraduate students also expressed interest in our MBA (Master of Business Administration) in Engineering," Dosdogru added. "The central location of Apeldoorn and the ease of travel to Germany, Belgium and other countries also caught their attention."

Nadervandi highlighted insights into applicants' proactive approach to preparing for studies abroad, often accompanied by supportive families.  

Reflecting on the experience, both Dosdogru and Nadervandi noted the rewarding encounters with students well-versed in the institution, confirming its reputation as a preferred choice for prospective students.
