My name is Nayab and I am from Tanzania, studying International Business. Given that the practical approach has more of an importance at this university, in contrast with research universities, was one of the reasons I was intrigued to come so far away from home. The direct application of theory into practice prepares you well for the “real world”, where you will experience what you have already been taught in class, such as working with people from different cultures and backgrounds, or presenting in front of a large group of people which provokes you to gain self-confidence. This university will shape you into a well-rounded professional that every company will need, just as it is shaping me right now.
There is a plethora of other reasons for coming to HZ but one of the main reasons are the friends you will make here. It was scary at first, as I didn’t know anybody, but you will find your second family here. Since Vlissingen is not a big city, you will easily make friends and get to know many people from different nationalities and cultures. This will be your home away from home!
