The Holland Scholarship is financed by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science together with Dutch research universities and universities of applied sciences. This scholarship is meant for international students from outside the EEA who want to do their master’s in the Netherlands.
My name is Andrea Garcia, I come from Quéretaro, México, and I studied MSc in Industrial Design Engineering. The Holland Scholarship gave me the opportunity to follow this programme at the University of Twente.
I had the chance to study at the University of Twente when I was doing a year of exchange. Back then I saw and felt what an innovation playground the Twente area and the University itself are. After every lecture, I urgently felt the rush to strive for better and I was enchanted by the stream of ideas and knowledge that popped in every alley of the University. I truly believed that this conglomerate of cultures, brilliant people and tacit companies support were the most motivating creative environment one could ever ask for. I felt so in love with daily breathing knowledge and culture, that I committed every drop energy I had in order to be able to come back; and so I did.
