The Hague University of Applied Sciences opened its doors to prospective students and parents for the second time this year. The event was well-attended and visitors were allowed to discover what International Business is about. The day started with a Program Presentation which everyone was encouraged to watch either before or after arriving on campus.
Three primary activities were held to let visitors understand more about the program and the university, as well as their prospective student life in The Hague.
- Student Market
What better way to see if IB is right for you than to speak with a current IB student? Visitors were greeted at the Anchor Point by a group of enthusiastic IB students who walked them through the building and answered all of their questions.
- Reflection Workshop
A fantastic opportunity for visitors to go through the program booklet, speak with IB lecturers, check out the program’s social media pages, consider their expectations for IB, and envision their future as IB students. This workshop encouraged students to consider why they wanted to study International Business and to identify the most appealing, as well as the most challenging, aspects of their potential journey at THUAS.
- Program Presentations
In these two short presentations, visitors got the chance to learn more about the building blocks of the curriculum and the principles behind the IB mission. Each presentation was followed by one Q&A session with IB alumni. They shared their experiences as students at IB, talked about their lives as young professionals, and answered questions coming from those present on campus but also from those who were watching the presentations from home.
The highlights of the Open Day were shared on Instagram, where another IB student provided insights on her life at THUAS and answered questions about the program, the university, and more. The next Open Day is taking place in April and prospective students will once again have the chance to visit the campus and have all their doubts addressed by lecturers and students. Save the date!
