My name is Maria Garces from Spain, I study International Business and Management Studies at HZ. The first thing that attracted me to HZ the most was its highly practical-related lessons, assignments and the environment itself. The second thing that I really liked was the international environment; there are people from all around the world here and you don’t know how much that matters to your studies. Vlissingen is not a big town compared to where I come from (Madrid), so at the beginning I missed some of the facilities that big cities can offer but after a while I started to like riding my bike everywhere, having the beach at a just 10-minute walk or the great parties on Thursdays.
If you have any questions regarding the IBMS programme, student life or what is like living abroad don’t hesitate to ask me! I will be more than happy to help you.
