“What I like about DAF is that you get the possibility to develop yourself. It is a large organization with numerous departments, so there are a lot of opportunities within the organization. The social life is also pleasant. The people I’ve met during the (almost) weekly Friday afternoon meetings, were very helpful and provide me with extra information about living in the Netherlands. Of course, there were also some difficulties. For example, it was not easy for me to find an accommodation in Eindhoven. Also, the living costs are much higher in The Netherlands compared to Eastern Europe.”
“Why I wanted to study abroad? The main reason was to distinguish myself from other graduates. The labor market in Poland is very small and studying abroad is an excellent way to develop your languages skills and gain experience in an international environment. I would advise other students to be open to exchange programs, because it gives you more opportunities once you are back in your home country. And try not to cling onto people with the same nationality, because getting in touch with different nationalities means you learn and experience more.”
