TU Delft, the Netherlands

Country of origin: Belgium
Study course: Bachelor in Computer Science

Why did you decide to study abroad?
I started studying abroad at the age of twelve when my family moved to Stockholm. The experiences I have gained and amazing people I have met are uncountable. They mean so much to me that I did not want to give up this experience by moving back home. Therefore, I decided to continue my journey through the world. My current stop: the Netherlands. I am hoping to have many more unforgettable experiences and develop myself as a person, as I will get to know new people and cultures.

What made you decide on this university?
After I decided to continue studying abroad, the choice to go to the Netherlands was easy to make. I have visited the Netherlands many times and realized that at one point in my life I want to live there. Therefore, I decided that this was the right time to make this dream come true. I decided to study at the TU Delft, since the bachelors programme is bilingual (Dutch and English). This gives me more future opportunities. The university offers great opportunities outside of my bachelors programme to enrich my knowledge. Let’s not forget that Delft is one of the most beautiful cities in the Netherlands!

How is your experience of studying abroad?
I have been abroad for six years, but this is the first time without parents. Although it feels a bit scary at the moment, as I am about to start my first year, I am very excited. I am able to get out of my comfort zone, meet lots of new people and learn more about their culture.

Why do you think others should not miss out on studying at your university
TU Delft is a beautiful university and has a very international mindset. It is a great engineering and science university with many English courses–especially for master degrees, which attract thousands of international students every year. There has been a lot of construction at the university to make it the beautiful and modern university that it is today and to keep up-to-date with the latest technologies.
