Scholarships

Fontys does not provide scholarships for its exchange students.

Fontys way of studying

At Fontys you will study in various ways. There are tutorials and lectures in classrooms with about 25 other students. In these sessions you will work in small groups or independently and depending on course choices, within a project team on your assignments. The campus offers a wide array of facilities to study alone or with a group. Here at Fontys, we believe that collaborative learning stimulates a hands on, independent way of working. At Fontys we believe in interaction. We like it when you ask questions during lectures and also outside lectures we are there for you.

Study coach

If you encounter problems regarding a certain subject, you can either speak to the lecturer involved or contact the exchange coordinator.
