International Coordinators On Fleek

 

I would like to thank my international coordination teams both in Paris and Amsterdam for their supports throughout this year full of adventures and surprises.

 

When you go away from home and from your family, you can feel alone. I felt alone for one month. I did not start my Erasmus adventure in the best conditions and I thought I was alone. When you have some problems, it's hard to ask for help when your people are behind borders. With my family (That I called a lot during the first weeks) and my international coordinators (Paris and Amsterdam) I realize that I was not alone and I have people around me to help me if I need it.

The university and the teachers know how welcome the international students with lunch, discussions, glass of wine, beers and interest. They are here if you have any questions and they mean it. I am happy to study in a good university which takes care of its students, and every student.

 

I found my room thanks to the University, which help international student in their hunt. They know how it's difficult to find an accomodation in Amsterdam, that is why there are a dozen of student buildings in Amsterdam. The place where I live is ten minutes walking from my University and in the center of Amsterdam. At first I did not colocation and roommates, but life brought me seventeen flatmates. You never know what can happen in your life, especially in Amsterdam or a place you don't know anything about.

The University has a dozen of buildings spread into the city, from the center of Amsterdam to  outside the city.My department 'Media, Information and Communication' is located in the center, near the Business Building, the 'Sociology' department and other.

HvA also possesses gymnasium, a sports department, a technological department, software on their computers and more. For example, as a student in communication, I can use the Adobe Software at the University. HvA also offers the access to an application which help you using application, programs, software as photoshop or audition.

The international coordinators are here for the international students, they were here for me when I needed it the most and they want you to be happy in the city and at the University.
