    Student story Iza

    Horticulture & Arable Farming student Iza really enjoys the social atmosphere at HAS green academy.

  • Student story Jessica

    Being part of an international programme makes it fun and very interesting to learn about other students’ cultural differences. The Netherlands itself is an open-minded and friendly country that embraces English as a second language in many cities, giving the students the opportunity to balance their financial lives and expand their social activities. I found it funny that many locals could speak my language or understand it at a certain level. Dutchies are often curious people with a kind but direct way of communicating.
