Why do we work together?

The primary reason international students come to the Netherlands are obviously the great educational institutions this country hosts. Apart from being the reason for students to come to the Netherlands, the institutions also serve as the first source of information for these students. 

Avans wants to help their students have a smooth start in their new host country. Therefore, they support new students before and during their arrival and organise social events in the first weeks of arrival. Still, some students remain with questions about how to arrange their basic needs most effectively and which providers can be trusted and which cannot. This is why we work together. International Student Services unburdens both the educational institution and the students themselves, by providing the right information and making the registration process for crucial services as easy as possible.
