Students about this programme

Joy Oloton

My name is Joy Oloton and I am 21 years old. I was born in Nigeria, in Africa. At the age of eleven I moved to Germany. And now, I am a first year student studying International Business and Management Studies at Fontys in Venlo.

I chose this study programme because I have always been interested in this area. Before I started studying, I completed my A-Level in Germany. I appreciate the study course because it is very broad and the atmosphere among the students is relaxed. Besides, the relationship with the lecturers is good because they are open-minded.
