"When looking for Bachelor’s programmes, I focused on universities with an international character and a diverse student body. I found it important to be surrounded by students with different backgrounds, academically as well as socially. Studying at AUC allowed me to specialise in and combine different fields such as Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science. Furthermore, exploring other fields outside of your major was encouraged and showed the benefits of a Liberal Arts and Sciences programme. Besides the challenging academics, AUC also provided an amazing social environment. Living on an international campus in the city of Amsterdam is a unique experience I will never forget. On top of that, there are many extracurricular activities and opportunities to develop various skills. For example, I was part of the board of the Student Association as Committee Affairs Officer and Vice-Treasurer. I was also part of one of the 28 committees that organised weekly events for the student body. AUC allowed me to develop academically, socially and professionally.​"
