Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences invites you to visit the Netherlands to experience being a student at the school for one day. You can attend a lesson, watch presentations, or take part in a seminar alongside current university students. No matter what you choose to do though, you will be able to explore the university’s programmes and see what an education at Wittenborg is all about.
During this “Experience Day”, you will also be able to ask questions regarding studying at the university and take a tour of Wittenborg and its facilities.
Choose a suitable date
By visiting different universities and seeing what it would be like to be a student at different institutions, you will be able to explore and compare programmes that you are interested in. This possibility is one of the most worthwhile options when trying to decide on your educational future. However, it can often be hard to include several university visits into your trip to the Netherlands because institutions usually organise these types of events on a set scheduled basis.
Wittenborg University provides a more flexible approach by offering the possibility to experience its study programmes during any day that they are taught. You can organize your Experience Day to fit with your trip to the Netherlands, allowing you to visit multiple institutions before making a final decision.
