Shaping 2030 is searching for Dutch First Generation students

First Generation students are students who are the first in their family to attend a college or university. This can lead to you feeling uncomfortable at university, having to deal with different expectations from your parents and / or other problems.

Well-known examples of First Generation students are our fiction heroine Matilda, Einstein and Michelle Obama. Do you happen to be a Dutch First Generation student? And do you recognize some of the problems mentioned above? You would help us a lot if you would like to share your experiences! Mail your contact details (name, e-mail, telephone number) to a.h.enklaar@utwente.nl and we will contact you for an interview. With your help we can help the next generation of First Generation students at our University!

E-mail a.h.enklaar@utwente.nl for more information about the project!
