Overall
This is one of those programs where you aren't necessarily amazed on the day to day basis. It was not until my 3rd year when I tutored a 1st year student that I truly saw my own growth. She received all the same feed back that I had once received and like me at the time did not understand it. It was an absolute AHA! moment because for the whole study the teachers train you to come to the answers yourself, there is not 'yes that is correct'. The skills you learn sneak up on you. As an American this hands off approach was very strange to me, but it turns out that it is exactly what I needed.

Course recommendations
I felt like in The Netherlands - at least at Hogeschool - they give a lot of importance to culture and interaction, difference in cultures and they had a lot of options on that topic. I realise that at my home university you don't feel this given importance to culture and I think It's great opportunity to learn about that.

Overall
During my study, my first year was a general year with al kinds of aspects, such as: Marketing, Sales, Data collection, Data processing and Sports Marketing. After this year, I chose the specialization Digital Marketing. During my second year I focussed more on the Online Marketing aspects like Google services (Ads, Analytics, Data Studio) and Wordpress websites. In my third year I will specialize more with a minor and I will do an Internship in Spain.

ABOUT
The Hogeschool van Amsterdam is the largest institution of its kind in the Greater Amsterdam region. It has over 17,000 students, 1,700 staff members and 70 courses clustered in 16 institutes.
Excellent relations are maintained with other educational institutions in the region, including a number of joint ventures.
Of particular significance is the strategic partnership between the University of Amsterdam and the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. These two partners have established a joint institute: UHA (University and Hogeschool Amsterdam). UHA will bring together, where appropriate, related courses of the partner-institutes and it will optimise student facilities like study counselling, libraries and housing. UHA will also develop courses for new fields of knowledge where watersheds between science and profession are irrelevant.
