My name is Celina, I am from Germany and I am studying Tourism Management at HZ. Coming to the Netherlands to study in Vlissingen was a pretty spontaneous but, at the same time, the best decision I ever made. Studying Tourism Management in a region where tourism is highly present, with the courses being in English and in an international environment is definitely a perfect combination.
The focus on applying the learned theory to projects that we work on with our fellow students that come from all over the world really prepares us for whichever career we decide to follow in the future. During our studies, we already have the opportunity to go abroad for several internships and for studying in other countries, too.
Besides that, living in Vlissingen is a lot of fun! As the city is relatively small everything is reachable by bike - I especially love going to the beach and enjoy the time with my friends there! Or we attend one of the multiple activities organised for students where you easily get to know a lot of different people, which is amazing, as you learn a lot about other cultures.
All in all, I can say that studying at HZ is a wonderful experience I never would have wanted to miss!
