    Personal FHML campus tour

    Choosing which university and bachelor programme you want to attend is an important decision. That is why we organise many study events throughout the year, such as our Bachelor’s Open Day and Experience Days. Are you unable to attend one of these events or do you prefer a personal appointment? Then we offer the possibility of a one-on-one guided campus tour. One of our students is happy to take the time and guide you around the campus, answering all the questions you might have.
