Russian Fontys students share their experiences during webinars and meetings

Announcements 11 September 2016, 18:45

Fontys University of Applied Sciences invites Russian-speaking prospective students to take part in its informational events. Russian university students will talk about studying at Fontys at the webinar on September 13th and then visit seminars and education fairs in Moscow and St. Petersburg from 14th to 19th of September, 2016.

Dmitrii Orlov, Russian Fontys studentFontys University of Applied Sciences is inviting Russian-speaking prospective students to take part in its informational events to learn more about studying at the institution. Current Russian university students will talk about studying at Fontys at a webinar on September 13th. Seminars and educational fairs will then be hosted in Moscow and St. Petersburg from September 14th to 19th, 2016.

Finding a fitting university in the Netherlands can be a challenging task. There are tens of promising options for every specialisation, each of which has its own advantages. To choose the best one for you, it’s crucial to have a good idea of what studying at a particular university looks like. Meeting with current students is one of the best ways to figure out those details, especially if the students you’re talking to have a background that’s similar to your own.

Fontys University’s informational events offer prospective Russian students an opportunity to talk to current Russian students that are studying at the institution. Staff members will also be available to chat with to find out more about the school’s educational process. The best part is that you don’t need to travel to the Netherlands to do this; Fontys will come to you!

The informational events include a webinar, seminars, and educational fairs in Moscow and St. Petersburg. They will be conducted in English and in Russian.


Fontys is hosting a webinar on September 13th from 16:00 to 17:30 Moscow time. The webinar is organised in cooperation with the Neso Russia office and will consist of two parts.

The first part will be especially useful for prospective students who don’t know much about studying in the Netherlands. The Neso Russia representative will discuss differences between Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences, as well as explain what Russian students need in order to apply to Dutch institutions. Information regarding scholarships designed specifically for Russian applicants will also be covered in the webinar.

The second part will be devoted exclusively to prospective students interested in studying at Fontys University. The institution’s focus is on the field of international business. In each of its programmes, whether studying IT, mechatronics, business, or marketing, the university provides students with practical projects which relate to the business world. For example, students enrolled in business programmes in Venlo will have the chance to set up their own company during their second year. In the Mechatronics programme, students will build robots to solve real life problems. And, of course, each programme offers many more opportunities and experiences to help students prepare for a successful career in the business world!

At the webinar, prospective students will be introduced to Fontys representative Linda Bouwman and three current students from Russia including:

Maksim Krupnov from Astrakhan, Russia: “Hello! My name is Maksim Krupnov, I’m 19 years old and I’m a second year student International Business and Management Studies at Fontys. If you want to study in the Netherlands, then don’t wait, but come and meet us during the webinar on the 13th of September!”

Ilya Mozhaev from Moscow, Russia: “Greetings to all! My name is Ilya Mozhaev. I am 20 years old and I am a 2nd year student of International Marketing at Fontys International Campus Venlo. I will be glad to answer all your questions during the webinar!”

Dmitrii Orlov from Moscow, Russia: “My name is Dmitrii Orlov. I am a second year student at Fontys University of Applied Sciences in Eindhoven. I study at the Faculty of Information and Communication Technologies and Software Engineering (ICT & Software Engineering).”

The webinar is free to all attendees and registration is open on the Neso Russia website.

Next to the webinar, prospective students can also meet Maksim and two other Fontys representatives in Moscow and St. Petersburg at various events in the middle of September.
