My name is Savina, I am from Bulgaria and I am studying Tourism Management. I chose the Netherlands because its education is one of the best in the world and I chose HZ because I fell in love with the sweet town of Vlissingen.
The programme is not only theoretical, there are also many workshops, which are very useful - to apply what you have learned in practice. We learn something new and interesting every day. The internships during the four years of study will help you develop as a professional in the tourism industry, so when you graduate you already have professional experience.
Leaving my comfort zone and going abroad was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done but it was also the best decision I ever made. Everyone is very nice and kind; it was very easy to make friends. I have friends from all over the world with whom I share my life in the Netherlands. We love watching the marvelous sunsets on the beach, traveling around the Netherlands and there is always something fun to do. I met so many new cultures without even yet visiting the country. Being in an international atmosphere broadens your horizons so much.
