7 reasons why you should attend an Online Open Day

On the 26th of March the Hanze University of Applied Sciences is having their Online Open Day. In this article Mihaela, an international student of the MSc in Business Studies programme, will tell you why you should not miss this event.

Mihaela Sugareva "Let me tell you why you should definitely not miss this event."

Hi guys! My name is Mihaela, I'm originally from Bulgaria and I'm a student of the MSc in Business Studies programme, here at Hanze UAS. As an international student, I know that deciding on a university to study at is a difficult choice. For that reason, it's definitely a good idea to do as much research as possible. One very good way to gather more information is through visiting our Online Open Day on 26 March! During the event, I will be present to tell you all about our university. In case you still doubt whether you should go, let me tell you why you should definitely not miss this event.

1. Get to know all (bachelor's) programmes thoroughly

Whether you already have an idea on what programme you're interested in or are still considering multiple options: during the Online Open Day, you can fully explore the study programme(s) of your choice! Join live presentations and Q&A sessions to find out more about the content and curriculum of the study programme, what your career options after Hanze would be, how we combine theory and practice and get an idea of the atmosphere of the programme.

2. Chat to current students

One of the best ways to find out whether a programme fits you is to talk to current students about their experiences. During Q&A sessions, you can ask our students any question you may have about the programme of your liking. Make sure to prepare some questions before the event, so that you can make the most out of it.

3. Get a feel of the study environment and facilities

Unfortunately, during an Online Open Day, you can't walk around to see the campus like you normally would. But don't worry, we've got you covered! Through videos of our international students showing you around all Hanze locations, you'll get to see what the classrooms look like, what the best places to study are, where to get the best coffee, etc. Get ready to experience our campus as if you were there!

4. Learn about Groningen – your possible future home

Of course, studying abroad is not just about learning. It is also about living in a new city for a number of years. Thus, it is very important to make sure that you can feel at home at your study destination. Ever since I arrived here 4 years ago, I immediately loved the city of Groningen, and even after finishing my bachelor's programme I didn't want to leave! The Dutch often say 'nothing tops Groningen' – and during the Online Open Day, we will tell you exactly why that is, and what kind of experience this city offers for international students.

5. Meet our Hanze Study Choice Support Team

Do you have a good feeling about choosing Hanze UAS, but are you not sure which programme to choose? Our Hanze Study Choice Support team will also be present during the Online Open Day to tell you how you can find out which programme fits you best.

6. Get to know all practical aspects of studying at Hanze UAS

Whether you have questions about financial matters, housing, entry requirements for our programmes, or any other practical issues: bring them to our Online Open Day! There, we'll give you all the answers you need to get a complete picture of what it will be like to live in Groningen and study at Hanze UAS.
