Utrecht University – the Netherlands

Student: Nicole 

Subject: Liberal Arts (Film and Philosophy) 


Nicole initially applied to study abroad as she had previously visited Utretcht to study an Art and Design course and found that an exchange to Utretcht was a perfect opportunity to learn more about her passions in the art world. She studied 17th  century Dutch Art, attending lectures, visiting museums, and took part in classes, art field trips, and guided tours to various  galleries across the Netherlands, including in Amsterdam.  


Nicole found this exchange was a great opportunity to travel and meet new people, and grow her confidence as someone who had never solo travelled before.  She used her free time to explore Utretcht and other cities, and highly recommends studying abroad to all students who are interested in her experience.
