"Dear future student,

My name is Martine Olsen, from Norway, and at the end of my first year of studying physical therapy at Fontys in Eindhoven.

Studying physical therapy at Fontys is one of the best choices that you can make; at least it was for me, and for my classmates. Studying at Fontys is definitely a different study experience; it is a great learning environment, with a mixture between theoretical, and practical experiences, and you are always challenged to develop as a person, and as a student.

On the first day of school in August, I met 40 new people, from about 15 different nationalities, and a week later, I had 40 new friends. As a physical therapy student you have to be creative, open and willing to have a lot of fun with your new friends, and the teachers. Being a part of the English stream here at Fontys means that all of the students and teachers at Fontys are your friends, it doesn’t really matter if you know them or not, they will all include you in this friendly and open atmosphere they have created.

Nowhere in the world have I ever experienced a learning environment that can compare to what Fontys offers. A well developed study program with so many different and exciting aspects, every day is a new day, and another chance to learn something new, and you will.

The old saying; “The home is where the heart is”, represents my experience as a student here, Fontys is home.

Hope to see you at the start of next semester."
