    Hello! How is it like to study physiotherapy in the Netherlands? What do you prefer about the program? How was it like to study and learn things in english (so not your mother tongue) at the beginning of your first year? Wasn't it hard? How much would you recommend me to apply for this program?

    Hey! Studying physiotherapy in the Netherlands is amazing as there practical approach to teaching the course is what you need as a physiotherapist and that’s what I love about the course. Unfortunately I can’t answers about learning things in English as I am a native speaker! I would highly recommend you to apply you won’t regret it!

    For the saxion clinical placements, it is done in the first year till the last year? And does saxion offer placements or do students need to find their own? It is a requirement to choose either paediatrics or orthopaedics, or can you do one type for all placements?

    Placement is done in 1st,2nd and 4th year and you have to find them yourself. Each placement is given a theme so According to the theme you can get placement so for example if it's orthopaedic so then you have to get and orthopaedic placement

    Hello!I'd like to know where you have done your internship, in Holland or in other country? Did you do it in English? I'm also looking for a room from august but I didn't find anything suitable around 300 E. Can you give me some advice ? Thanks a lot for helping me!

    Hi Andrei, I have done all my internships in Ireland so they are all done through english! in relationship to the room keep looking at the Facebook groups as usually most rooms are around 300E . If you fail to find one try contacting the International Office in Saxion and they should be able to help you out!

    Hey :) So I'm not familiar with Enschede. What is the student vibe like? Is it a student city where there is lots of activities or is it a more quite environment? What is your favorite/least aspect of the physiotherapy program? Is the student environment welcoming? Thanks for answering :)

    Hey Maria, Enschede is a very student friendly town there is loads of things to do around the place! I love the way the course has a more practical focus then theory as i would be weaker with theory subjects than practical subjects! The student environment is very welcoming!
