Student Elena about studying at Fontys:
"Entering the doors of Fontys you can feel the place inviting you to explore yourself and the world."
Year 1 teaches you about the wide scope of communication. Each study period focuses on a particular theme in which students work on projects for real clients and companies. The themes are:
- Branding and Activation
- Reputations and Relations
- Content and Creation
We work on practical assignments and provide you with the tools, insights and hands-on experience to take on communication projects. After year 1, you understand the terminology and are able to specialise in parts of the field of communication that suit you best.
Year 3 can be best described as a year of exploration and specialisation. You spend 5 months working as an intern in a company in the Netherlands or abroad. The internship is a great way to customise the study programme, as you can choose the company yourself. We also provide a list of companies we have worked with before.
During the second half of the year, students follow a minor. This allows students to expand their study programme with subjects that are offered at other universities. Students can opt for a minor offered at Fontys, a minor offered by a university in the Netherlands, or a minor offered by one of our partner universities abroad. We have established partnership agreements with universities all over the world.
