Dear international student,

Do you feel sometimes lost being far away from home, not yet grounded in your new country? Or.. the opposite, you feel like you are a new person ready for new adventures? Have you also wondered why people here eat shitty bread for breakfast and lunch.. But not for dinner? Or .. are you one of those lucky ones, who already figured everything about de DigiD with all the doors that it opens?

Whoever you are, Welcome to the Netherlands. We are the COUNSELORS.

Two former international students from France and Hungary who became experts in  listening and understanding the many issues, questions, advises you have about this country. Therefore recognizing the power your voice has.

We believe you are more than an international student. Who are you? What is your identity here? Who do you want to be?

If you are intrigued by this message, come to us.

We will be here for the next 3 weeks, opening our counselling office from Monday to Friday between 18.00 to 20.00 just beside the ping pong tables.

And don’t forget, the first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.
