What students think about ONCAMPUS Amsterdam

    Arnanda Hafhiza Firda Wibowo

    Testimonial from Arnanda Hafhiza Firda Wibowo, student at ONCAMPUS Amsterdam

    "I wanted to study in the Netherlands and choose the University of Amsterdam because it is one of the highest ranked universities in the world and the best university in the Netherlands according to the QS World University Rankings (2013-14).

    An advantage of studying here is that the tuition fees and the living costs are lower than in many other English speaking countries. Studying in Amsterdam means that you will study in an international city where the majority speak English to a high level, which makes it easy to settle down. The atmosphere in Amsterdam is really nice, there are lots of parks and canals.

    After I finish the Undergraduate Foundation Programme, I would like to complete the BSc Economics and Business at the University of Amsterdam and continue in a Master’s degree or work in the Netherlands. After graduating from the bachelor degree I will have the opportunity to stay for 12 months to find work. "

    Testimonial from Samuel Oyiochioya Ileoma, student at ONCAMPUS Amsterdam

    "I decided to study abroad to learn new things in a new environment. Amsterdam FoundationCampus is an excellent route to enter the University of Amsterdam. The university is one of the best universities in the world and I would definitely recommend the pathway to other students. The tuition fees and living costs are also relatively low compared to other similar ranked universities in English speaking countries.

    The best thing that I have learned so far is to be independent and to make day to day decisions in daily life. Amsterdam FoundationCampus gives you the opportunity to meet other students from countries all over the world and we have a lot in common, so it is easy to make friends.

    I am looking forward progressing to the BSc Economics and Business and graduate in this degree to continue my career in the business entertainment sector. "

    Testimonial from Li Li, student at ONCAMPUS Amsterdam

    "After graduating in China I worked for a few years and now I would like to specialise in Economics and Business, so I decided to choose the University of Amsterdam and enter via Amsterdam FoundationCampus. I especially like the opportunity in the degree to do an internship or go on exchange for a semester as it will help me to put my academic knowledge into practice. Amsterdam is a good destination for international students because it is a small city and lots of people speak English very well.

    Living and studying in Amsterdam means that you are surrounded by many international students from all over the world. I have made lots of friends at Amsterdam FoundationCampus of many different nationalities. I am also living with students from many different countries in my accommodation. We regularly meet for social activities together such as having dinner, going to the movies and sightseeing in Amsterdam."
