I have always been interested in the environment. I want to be able to make a change that helps to preserve it. I chose to study ESSET in the Netherlands after I visited an educational fair in Hungary. I wanted to study abroad and in English to meet people from other cultures. ESSET was represented at the fair, and I got a good feeling after learning more about it at the fair.
I very much enjoyed the first-year project on sustainable energy. We had to find out what it takes to make a country 100% sustainable. For this we needed to work in a project team and use the theory we had in class and put it to work in a practical environment. The mix between theory and practical work is what I like about the education at Avans. The practical work is in a way your independent research, since you are responsible for the information you find and the way in which you use it.
The international aspect is what I really like about ESSET - everyone is from a different culture. When I decided to study ESSET I knew about the mix between theory and practical work but I expected less from it, so it was a real surprise and I am very happy to have chosen this programme. Another thing that is great about ESSET are the lecturers, they are always there for you when you need them.
