The Foundation really helped me a lot because I think it is very difficult for me to enter the Dutch education system. By doing the Foundation, I really felt like I improved a lot from the language and also from the way I study.

This Foundation Year has helped me a lot as without it the subjects would be very confusing without knowing the English. The International Study Centre helped me a lot with the skills I need at university. It is very interesting and I like learning here.
