‘I am an active member in Aureus and my first committee was IBA Juniors. This committee gave me the possibility to work closely with my study, International Business Administration. When I took my decision to come study in the Netherlands, I was very nervous, but excited. My choice fell to the Netherlands as I wanted to study in English and I always have been interested in this culture. Arriving here was harder than expected, not knowing anyone, nor the language of the country. Joining Aureus helped me a lot with those problems. I immediately made a lot of new friends, had lots of fun events to participate in. It also gave me many possibilities to get to know the working world of the Netherlands thanks to several Inhouse days, but also several meetings within Aureus helping to prepare you for the job market.
All in all I can say that Aureus was the first and the best decision I took when arriving here, and I have not regretted it ever since. It opened a lot of doors in this for me foreign country, and made it a little less foreign and a little more home to me’
