#1 Prepare your questions  

We will make sure that you will get a detailed impression of your favourite study programme(s) by browsing our catalogue. However, you might have some additional questions. And that makes perfect sense! Choosing the right study programme means you will need to get into the details of the programme in order to figure out whether it will be the right fit. 

Make sure you write your questions down, so you can ask them to a lecturer or student during one of the livestreams. Or, visit IntoSaxion anytime to ask your questions to current Saxion students.  

Examples of questions during a Digital Discovery Day

About the study programme

  • What does a semester look like?
  • Is there an intake?
  • What is the English requirements?
  • When are the deadlines to apply?
  • Can I work besides my studies? 
  • What type of laptop do you recommend?
  • How many internships are required during the 4 years? 

About moving to the Netherlands:

  • How can I apply for a visa?
  • Does Saxion help with finding housing?
  • Is getting insurance mandatory?
  • How can I apply for a scholarship?

#2 Don’t be afraid to ask questions  

You will have the opportunity to ask your questions during the livestream sessions during a Digital Discovery Day. There are two ways to do so:

  • By 'raising your hand': click on the icon at the bottom of the screen.
  • By asking your question in the chat on the right side of your screen.

To prevent everyone from talking, your camera and microphone are switched off. You may be invited to ask your question 'live'. The moderator will then activate your microphone.

#3 Be aware of the possible time difference

Please keep in mind that the programme of the Digital Discovery Day is scheduled in Central European Time Zone (CET) times. 

#4 Block your agenda 

Check the program and pick the timeslot(s) that best suits you. To be fully prepared, you can write the timeslot(s) of your livestream session(s) in your agenda so you won’t miss out!  

#5 Let your parents or guardian join  

We can imagine that your parents or guardian would also like to know what type of study programme you will choose! They are more than welcome to join the Digital Discovery Day! And since the camera and microphone are switched off, you don’t have to worry that we will see that your whole family will be joining 😉

#6 Make yourself comfortable and check your devices 

In order to create the best online experience, we would like to ask you to make sure you have a working WiFi connection. Furthermore, the best way to attend the Digital Discovery Day is by using a Google Chrome browser on a laptop. Not sure how to install Google Chrome? Check out these instructions. You can also attend the Q&A livestream(s) on your phone, but the experience is better on a laptop.
