Olaf Timmermans is a professor and is an advocate for lifelong learning.

An inspiring environment
“I have experienced that HZ offers a great environment for lifelong learning and not just when you are a student. For example, you can start working here as a lecturer, develop yourself and become an associate professor. That is fairly unique in Zeeland, but it is possible! I think HZ offers employees a lot of opportunities - you sometimes have to fight for it and row against the tide, but there is space for it - and HZ is keen to offer these opportunities. We see this high potential not just in students but also in employees. And that makes HZ a fun and inspiring environment.”
