 International students @ PXL

Silvia, a student communication management from Spain:

Ruben, an IT student from Spain:

After six months I can say that this is a good place to study! The international module offers the possibility to put into practice all the knowledge that I learned at my university in Spain. The subjects are very practical, and therefore interesting to study. It was also very clear that the teachers are responsible people who look after their students very well.

Although Dutch is a difficult language I was able to communicate with my peers. Most of the Belgian people speak and understand English.

Finally I would like to say that staying in Hasselt gives you the possibility to travel. Because of its close proximity to neighbouring countries you don’t only get to know Belgium, but also the rest of Europe.
