”I really like NHL Stenden. I want to show people from Latvia the opportunities and possibilities that NHL Stenden offers.”

Why Leisure and Events Management

​'NHL Stenden and the Leisure and Events Management (L&EM, previously Leisure Management) course really grabbed my attention when I read about it in the NHL Stenden magazine. I immediately got the feeling that this was the place for me. Both the university and the study programme were perfect for me. After the whole process of signing up for the study programme and moving to the Netherlands, I began my studies at NHL Stenden. It really met my expectations, I even think it exceeded them.

The thing that I like the most about L&EM is that it’s a very broad area of expertise: sports, events, arts, media, culture; there are many aspects to it. When I came to NHL Stenden I didn’t know what I wanted to do in the future, so having this kind of variety and all these options was something that I really liked'.
