Country of origin: Greece
Programme: Educational Science and Technology (MSc)
My name is Vasileia, I am 23 years old and I am a (Pre)Master’s student in the Program in Educational Science and Technology at the University of Twente. I was born and raised in Greece. I have a Bachelor degree in Pedagogics with a specialization in Primary education (Teaching qualification) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I was an Erasmus exchange student in Ghent University in Belgium for six months in the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy and the Faculty of Education. Last year I followed also an online course on Educational Research and Statistics in Leiden University.
After my experience of being a student abroad I decided to come to Enschede to study in the prestigious University of Twente this year for my Master. During my stay here in Enschede, I found out that studying in the Netherlands and especially in the University of Twente gives you the opportunity to follow a program in a “High Tech” University and the best qualifications for your future career. What is more, the numerous English taught programs attract students from every part of the world, thus promoting an international environment in the university.
I am also the manager of the Greece Portal on Facebook. Through this portal, we try to inform and help the upcoming students of University of Twente. For example, by visiting the Portal future students can have a look at the program they are interested in or to find out more about the international student life and Dutch culture. Please, feel free to contact me for any questions that you may have, I will be glad to help you. :) For more information about the University of Twente you can also visit our Greek web page.
