About Student for a day

We match you with one of our international students currently enrolled in the study programme of interest to you. Together, you set a date suitable for both of you, on which you can come and explore: join an actual class, meet with lecturers, visit the International Office or a student hotspot in the city. You can do anything you like to experience what Saxion has to offer you.


Anyone can take part! And if you’d like to bring a friend or your parents, that’s possible too!

Together with the student with whom you are matched, you decide when and where you meet up. Depending on your preferred study programme, it will be in Enschede, Apeldoorn or Deventer. Are you unable to travel to the Netherlands? No problem! Our students can also set up an online programme. Just make sure to indicate this on the sign-up form.
