Why Fontys?

I decided to study at Fontys, because of the practical focused programme that they offered. For me the best way to not only learn but to prove your knowledge is field work and Fontys offered exactly this.

Do you have some tips for new students?

I would say to enjoy it, to not be too hard on yourself since it’s easy to get lost in the curriculum and not enjoy the stay. There will be moments where more focus is needed but its important to enjoy what you are doing as well.

Anything you want to add?

With regards to Fontys, the emphasis on work-social balance was a positive aspect of the four years of study since it allowed us students to take that needed time off the studying side and enjoy the social aspect of being in university as well.
