 Why did you choose to study at Avans?

“I wanted to study at Avans because it is a university of applied sciences that moulds you for the business world. Avans gives you all the instruments you need to be successful in your workplace. Also, the international environment was pleasant. It is a place where diversity is embraced.”

Did studying at Avans enrich your life?

“I really liked the study programme, the modern campus structure, the professionalism and seriousness of the staff. My years in the Netherlands were among the most exciting moments of my life. I had the chance to study in a great, diverse and inclusive environment. I had the privilege to be taught by great lecturers, whom I admired. They taught us not only to be excellent professionals but also to be great men and women. I felt welcome and at home from the first day I set foot on the grounds of the campus. Truly an enriching experience. Counting on visiting soon.”
