Dear Kristina :)
Thank you for your question. In general it can be said that every school year ends in the middle/end of July. It depends if you have to retake any exams or not.
Hope this was helpful for you :)
Hi Alex, the online assessment is not a language test. To certificate your language skills you would need to take an English test like IELTS or TOEFL. You can find the general entry requirements here https://www.saxion.edu/site/programmes/degree/entry-requirements/.
The online tool you are talking about is intended to have a first impression of your knowledge and skills and serves for orientation purposes. Its completion is conditional for the admission, while his results are not. The assessment is also useful for you to know how compatible you are with the program. I hope this answers your question :)
Should you have specific questions about the admission procedure and the enrollment, you can contact the International Office via Facebook through this link https://m.me/saxionuniversity
For any other question about the IHRM program, feel free to post here! We will all be happy to help!
Have a very great day :)
a quick update for you. I found this recent video that may be interesting for you to get some clarification on the (online) assessment and the interview. Enjoy it here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SQfnK-YzRCg
Have a great day,
thank you for your message!
IntoSaxion is a platform from students for students, dedicated to all your questions about the different study programs. For queries related to admission, insurance, housing or anything that is not connected with the study specifically, you can get in touch with the International Office via http://m.me/saxionuniversity Via them you can have an official answer to all your questions :)
Good luck with the preparation to your course!
Hello Alex! The intake interview can take place via Skype, if you are not able to come to Enschede. Basically, it's a tool for Saxion to understand whether your English skills are good and what your motivation to study IHRM is. So, it's advisable to just think about your motivation to apply for the study and be yourself :). They may ask you a few questions about your background, but it is generally an informal conversation. In the end the instructor will give you a recommendation as to whether he/ she thinks you are suitable for the course.
I hope this answers your question! Feel free to ask me any more questions.
I am sorry to hear about your father situation. I wish you and your family a fast and smooth recovery.
Unfortunately, no first year student is here on the platform, but you can find all the lessons material on Blackboard at https://leren.saxion.nl You can login with your usual credentials and access the courses from the top-menu "My AMA". Click on the courses and you will be redirected to the course page. Once there, on the left sidebar, you can find the menu for all the weeks.
Please inform the study counsellor Miriam Hofste about you not able to be there at firstname.lastname@example.org . It would be optimal if you can explain your situation. Trust me, they do help and understand a lot when such unfortunate events occur.
I hope this answers your query. Please get back to us anytime!
Good luck and see you soon at Saxion,
Davide, 3rd year IHRM student
Hi Freek, neem even contact op met ons infocentrum via email@example.com. Zij kunnen aangeven wat er nog mogelijk is! Groetjes.
Great that you are coming to join Saxion and the IHRM community!
In answer to your questions, the duration of the classes vary, I've been in classes of 1 hour, some 1 hour 30 minutes, and others much longer like 3 hours. In the longer classes we get break to go to the toilet or get something to eat :)
I would say that you do need a laptop, there are computers available for you to use.. there are desktops in both the AMA department and the library. But since we have to do a lot of course work and research - it is very handy to have your own laptop.
Hope that has answered your questions! if you have any more, please feel free to ask :)
Please, can you call our information center on 088-019-3700? Thank you!
Sorry for the late reply, I have been quite busy with my internship program for my study in the IHRM program.
But about your questions, I am more than happy to give you some insights about our program and about Saxion.
In our international human resource management program, the key-word is International! Literally, everything you can find in this program will be international! There will be students coming from all over the globe, from my personal experience, I have the chance to study and work with Dutchies, Germans, Jamaican, Chinese, Estonian, Russian, etc. It was quite an experience for me!
About the study itself, you will have the chance to study a lot of interesting topics. For example, during the first quarter of the first year, you will be taught how to learn. Sounds weird, isn't it? But I have to tell you, as a fellow Vietnamese, the education system is quite different compared to what we have back in our home country so this period will be really helpful for you to integrate in a new environment. Then, after you are more used to the new country, you will deep-dive into different topics like: "Intercultural Communication; Business Economics (don't worry not too many financial stuff in here); Psychology; People and Labour; Labour Law; Organizational Design and Culture; etc." I can go into more details but then let's do it via e-mail/skype if you like to since it would be too long to write down here.
Overall, the study program is really nice and helpful so I really like it ^_^! The people here are nice too, when I first came, I was introduced to a group of Vietnamese in Enschede and we usually have some get-together for special occasions. I can get you in touch with them if you like to since currently, I am working in Amsterdam so I am not living in Enschede anymore. I am sure that you will find a lot of friends here since people are very friendly, not only the Vietnamese but also the Westerners :'D
For the last bit, I have been here for also 4 years now, I have adapted quite well to the environment, culture and the work ethic of people here. I am also planning to find a job here later on so finger crossed! If you are able to adapt to the western culture, I'm sure that you will do just fine.
Well, that's it for me today, hope I answered your questions. If you would like to know more about everything, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss further. Nice to e-meet you and have a nice weekend!
Ik heb meerdere redenen gehad om IHRM te doen in plaats van HRM. Eén daarvan was de buitenlandse stage. Dit is ook mogelijk bij de reguliere opleiding, maar bij de internationale variant is het er echt een onderdeel van: ontzettend gaaf om een half jaar in een ander land (Nieuw-Zeeland in mijn geval) te wonen en stage te lopen! Daarnaast is de gehele opleiding in het Engels, wat goed van pas komt omdat het steeds meer een vereiste is om als professional op hoog (professioneel) niveau Engels te spreken. Dit vond ik zelf niet moeilijk - je went er inderdaad snel aan. De laatste twee redenen waarom ik heb gekozen voor IHRM is dat de focus ligt op het internationale aspect van bedrijven en HR (hoe ga ik mijn bedrijf door middel van HR internationaal op de kaart zetten?) en het feit dat IHRM tot nu toe een unieke studie is in Nederland en dus alleen bij Saxion wordt aangeboden (goed voor je CV!).
Ik kan je deze opleiding van harte aanbevelen. Veel docenten hebben écht kennis van zaken op internationaal gebied en zijn één met de studenten. Veel succes met het maken van een keuze!
Hi Kate, sorry for the late reply, I was busy at my internship. About the question, you can find other Nigeria students via the Facebook group of Saxion. Has you got access to it yet?
I came all the way from Kenya so I understand it can be rather scary moving to a new country. But not to worry!! there's loads of stuff for you to get involved in, so that you can meet new people. For example at the beginning of the school year there is an introduction week; HOI WEEK! you can sign up for this. Its a lot of fun! You will get to know the city and loads of other people also starting there first year of uni.
What is also nice to do is to join the student union from your academy! They will arrange loads of fun activities for you to join and socialize :)
You will probably also meet people through your living situation, if you live in Student housing for example.
I hope this was helpful! enjoy your first year!
I totally agree with what Kristy wrote above :) HOI (introduction) WEEK and Saxion student associations are always a good idea. You can also check the external ones, like AIESEC or AEGEE. They will as well be happy to show you everything that Enschede has to offer.
Good luck and enjoy your time at Saxion!
Hi Gwen, it's of course a plus to learn some dutch while studying and living here but it is not necessarily needed. When I recently looked for HR internships online, there were a lot of offers that did not require dutch! :-) I hope I could help you. Let me know if there is more, Olivia
Hi Linda! Great that you are considering Saxion for your exchange semester, the HR study here has really given me some great insights. In regards to your question, it highly depends on when you start searching for accommodation. Enschede has got loads of students which means there are also loads of student housing complexes. The two main Facebook groups: Apartments in Enschede & University of Twente - Marktplaats offer great help. Enschede isn't a huge city so even if you live outside the city centre it only take about 15 mins to get to Saxion by bike which isn't too long. There are loads of students on exchanges as well so finding something for 6 months shouldn't be a problem. I'd say you can give the Facebook groups a chance and if that doesn't turn up anything good, contacting students that already have housing and might be moving out (like myself and other 3yr students) can be an option. Best of luck! Kind regards, Kristy McGovern.
