Why Fontys?

Fontys has the perfect location, it is close to the center of Eindhoven and close to the station. It is easy to reach by public transport. This has played a part in my choice.

Furthermore, the first impression. First impressions are very important, the first time I saw the university, I said: ‘Wow...’.  It is so big and modern. I visited multiple universities and the appearance of Fontys was far and away the best.

At the open day an International Business student Told us something about his carrier at Fontys. He was so enthusiastic that I immediately became enthusiastic. I already saw myself studying at Fontys. The environment and the people at Fontys were the deciding factors for me .

Can you tell something about your campus / city?

Eindhoven is an innovative city with many events. As a typical woman, I like to shop. After school, whenever I need something, I go to the city to buy something. There are many restaurants and cafes where you can drink or eat something, what I love, because I love food. Moreover, there are many events in Eindhoven such as festivals. At last but not least, Stratum. As a student I love to go out and Stratum is a great place to go out. There are numerous cafes and clubs. For everyone there is a place to go to!

Do you have some tips for new students?

A university is very different than a high school. When you start at Fontys you cannot continue with the same attitude as you did on your high school. A lot of self-discipline is necessary, and you need to work harder than before.

Furthermore, if you are living on your own for the first time you want to enjoy it by partying and have a good sleep. This is not a problem, but your school performance should not suffer from it. This again leads to self-discipline.

Anything you want to add…..

Although you need some self-discipline you should enjoy your time at Fontys! Dream big, think big and unlock your full potential!!
