International experience for students

International experience allows students to discover new technologies, techniques and trends in their profession. 

International experience 

Students see first-hand how things are done in their profession in other countries. Hair stylists in Finland cut hair in a particular way. Barbers in Belgium do it differently. And elderly people of Turkish descent differ from their contemporaries in the Netherlands in terms of the way they want to be treated. Thus students develop a broader understanding of their profession while gaining valuable life experience. They learn to identify with people from widely diverse backgrounds and discover how to collaborate with colleagues who speak a different language. Students who spend time abroad return noticeably more confident and independent.

  • Each student participates in at least 2 international activities during his education
  • 300 students go abroad every year for an internship or an international project
