My name is Mikaela. I am from Bulgaria and I study Tourism Management. I chose to study at HZ as it is an educational institute where we feel we really matter as students and the teachers use innovative teaching methods. We develop not only our academic skills but also transferable competencies like time management and teamwork. Another reason to come here was the multicultural environment -there are students from countries all over the world and it is very interesting to interact with them and get to know more about their cultures.
My programme is practically orientated with internships, minors and group projects. We gain knowledge about the business world as we study marketing, human resource management, tourism & hospitality, how to do a research, etc. The course thoroughly prepares us to become professionals manager in the tourism and hospitality industries. Vlissingen is the perfect place to study Tourism as it is a lovely tourist destination. Even though it is a small town, there are a lot of activities and organizations you can join to entertain yourself.
If you have any questions about the university, the tourism programme, the student life in Vlissingen or anything else, don’t hesitate to contact me!
