Small-scale and personal

Even though Fontys is one of the largest educational institutions of the Netherlands, our university is organised to provide education in small classes. The classes consist of around 30 students. Most international students live in one of our three student apartment blocks, so it's easy for to make friends.

Every student is assigned to a personal study coach. This is a lecturer who guides you through your whole studies and supports you if necessary. They are your personal contact for study-related or personal questions.
