International students have to transition to a new life when they start studying in The Netherlands. Besides studying, you have to get used to speaking in English all the time, adapt to a new culture, make new friends and often learn how to cook. At the same time you have to attend classes, do homework and prepare for exams.
We have seen that international students have a higher chance of dropping out in the first year. Especially in the first months they tend to fail exams more than Dutch students. We have developed courses that help you understand the fundamentals of various subjects, such as marketing, accounting or organisation of business. This makes it easier to follow the lessons and to pass the courses.
