Discover your world – Come for study in the Netherlands! Christopher Lomanto from England tells about studying at NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences on International Real Estate & Facility Management programme.

1) How did you decide to study in Holland/Breda?

Before commencing my studies at the NHTV in Breda, I studied International Business and Management Studies in Amsterdam. I did not like studying in Amsterdam because it is very busy and I had to travel a lot. Also, the study did not suit my personality. Therefore, I chose to study in the South of the Netherlands where it is not so busy and in my opinion it is a lot nicer.

2) What was your first impression?

My first impression was very positive. The people were extremely friendly and the city centre was lively but cosy.

3) What about your studies?

At first, I wanted to study International Hotel Management, but during my intake interview I reconsidered my choice because I acknowledged that Facility Management suited my future goals more than Hotel Management. Now half way through the first year I can say that I do not regret changing my initial choice of study.

4) What does a day of your life as a student look like?

During your student life there can be ups and downs, however the most important thing is how you deal with your down moments. A normal day is going to university to follow classes, doing homework, relaxing, eating, socialising (going out in the city centre) and sleeping. It seems pretty dull but actually it’s a lot of fun and the university experience can be very valuable in the future.

5) Where do you meet your friends?

I met most of my friends at university. It is quite easy to make friends at university in comparison to high school, where immaturity plays an important role. During study trips you also see a lot of people becoming friends.

6) Best experience during study in Holalnd?

My best experience was the study trip to Brighton, England. All first year Facility Management students went to Brighton for 5 days and we learnt all about the field of Facility Management. It was a valuable learning experience and a lot of fun.

7) Do you share your room with other students?

Yes, I live in a student house with 5 other students, one which is currently studying at the NHTV and another is an ex-NHTV student.
