A positive and lively atmosphere was the impression which visitors obtained during the first Open Day of this academic year. In total, more than 2,000 people from the Netherlands and abroad, who are interested in studying at Inholland, visited Inholland's various sites.
Due to the small scale set-up of the Open Day in The Hague, there was ample opportunity for personal contact. The learning experience company GNR8 was one of the participants and prepared a show about the information day. With regard to motivated students, a potential Spanish student took the first flight out of Barcelona on Saturday to attend the Open Day. So keen was she to attend the English-language programme in Media and Entertainment Management.
In Rotterdam enthusiastic students, lecturers and students involved in promoting programmes were available to answer all the visitors' questions. It was particularly busy at the Study Choice Advisory Centre. The advisers received a constant stream of questions about Inholland and its programmes.
A school pupil, Laura, paid a visit to the International Business and Management Studies (IBMS) programme. "Recently there have been negative reports about Inholland. In my environment I have heard nothing but good stories about this programme and the University. This is the reason that I decided to attend the Open Day. After my visit, I can certainly see myself studying here."
The Open Day in Amsterdam/Diemen could be characterised as strong with regard to its content and serious. What was striking was that the potential students were well-prepared and often knew exactly what study they were interested in.
In Delft there was also room for personal discussions and discussions about the content of the programmes. What was striking was that in addition to potential Dutch students, the Aeronautical Engineering programme drew potential students from Lithuania, Great Britain and the United States.

In Haarlem, the Music Academy gave performances in its own wing and an acoustic duo played in the central hall. The Study Choice Advisory Centre was in the middle of the central hall, which was also referred to as the 'study choice square'. After completing a study choice test, potential students could register immediately for trial studies or make an appointment to meet a study choice adviser.
