Emilia – Creative Business, University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands
I had never thought about studying abroad, really. The idea came to me when I was on holidays with my parents in Amsterdam. We stumbled upon one of the universities’ campuses and I was just so in love with the place!
On the very same day I checked what courses in English the uni offered. Having done some more research, I decided that studying in the Netherlands was perfect for me.
At the beginning of my last year of high school, I found Elab and immediately scheduled an appointment. I knew that I would need some guidance when it came to the whole application process.
During that time Elab was very helpful. Starting off with instructions on how to fill in the application forms online to helping me collect and prepare all necessary documents, looking for a flat, and any other pre-departure tasks, they were with me every step of the way.
My first days at university were very stressful for me. Everything was new and surprising, but I’ve got used to it now and love the cheerful atmosphere!
I would recommend studying abroad to everyone. It’s an amazing opportunity to broaden your horizons, meet new people, and learn so many useful things!
