I am Maria-Tyana, a first year student Global Project and Change Management from Bulgaria. Before deciding to enroll in this programme I was rather lost. I knew neither where nor what I would like to study the only thing, I was sure of was the fact that I wanted to make a change in the world by pursuing a certain career. 

When I came across Global Project and Change Management, it was love at first sight. The environmental-related study combined with a business degree is what made me choose this study. After a short research, I found out that Windesheim was the best place to pursue this programme, therefore, I applied immediately. 

We learn how to do research, project plans and organizational analysis
By enrolling I got to experience a whole new teaching method. Even though I am only in the first year of the programme, practice-oriented studying is the one for me.  We are working with a real client and learning how to do research, project plans, organizational analysis, and more. Having said that, I would say that I am already building the needed experience in order to make a positive change in the world as a project manager and a change maker.
What I love about the programme, apart from the subject of the study, is how diverse it is. I have classmates from all over the world. That has made me see different perspectives and opinions, not only on sustainability but on life in general. It has made me even more passionate about helping people with my work in the future.

Once you get a hold of it you are able to complete big assignments in no time
Even though Global Project and Change Management is a practice-oriented programme, there is a lot of writing involved. At the beginning, it wasn’t easy, however, once you get a hold of it you are able to complete big assignments in no time.
For me, the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the most important thing that the programme focuses on. Before I was unaware of the concept of 17 aims established by the United Nations that define the world that we would want to live in. In addition to that, all the other skills that we learn are going to help is to contribute to achieving the SDGs.

Everything is no further away than a 15-minute bicycle ride
Windesheim has great facilities. We have our own floor and we even have a Common room where we gather for different lectures and workshops apart from the study. Having said that, there are many extracurricular activities organized by the university and its students alike.
Although Zwolle is a small city it has everything that a student needs from quiet places to study to good places for going out. I love the fact that everything is no further away than a 15-minute bicycle ride, which helps a lot during deadline week. In addition, there are great parks where you can take a walk in nature. 

In my opinion, The Netherlands is the perfect place for a university student. The educational system offers a large variety of programmes to choose from as well as an English friendly environment where all foreigners are welcomed. 
For me studying Global Project and Change Management in Zwolle is a dream come true, therefore, I welcome all of the challenges that come along the way :)
