Student life

Everybody knows that being a student is much more than studying till the early hours of the morning and sweating at exams. That is just part of it. The part that helps you expand your mind, test your brain, make you proud of your hard-won achievements and feel yourself slowly but certainly develop into a qualified professional with expert knowledge and managerial skills. But a well-balanced professional also relaxes.

Fun, sports and being together with like-minded friends and going on trips: that is the reward for hard work. Vlissingen and Middelburg offer you everything you need to enjoy student life. Within cycling distance you will find shops, bars, the beach and loads of activities at HZ itself.
