What is a Digital Discovery Day? 

During a Digital Discovery Day, you join livestreams sessions to learn everything about your preferred study programme and who we are at Saxion. You can interact directly with lecturers, current students and our staff, and get all the answers you need to shape your future as a student.

During the study programme sessions, you meet the lecturers to learn everything about your future Bachelor's programme. How to prepare for the intake? What is the programme for each year? What are the job opportunities after graduating? Current students will also be there to talk about their experience: Do you work often in groups? What type of laptop do you recommend? Is it possible to have a student job on the side?

Our general sessions will provide useful information to help you land smoothly in the Netherlands: When do I need to request my Visa? How to apply for a scholarship? How to look for accommodation? 

The Digital Discovery Day helped me get rid of assumptions and feel confident in myself to choose my study programme.
