Studying in Velp

When you like a green environment, sports, going out and meeting other students, then Velp is the right place for you. It is here that VHL University of Applied Sciences (VHL) offers a great location on a beautiful estate: the modern building is surrounded by luscious greenery and it is only a few minutes away from the vibrant city centre of Arnhem.

Arnhem offers a vibrant nightlife on the Korenmarkt, which is the entertainment centre of the city. You will also find the societies of the student associations here. Boasting various universities of applied sciences with loads of international students, Arnhem is a dynamic city with many great initiatives. You will never be bored here!

Study and student associations

Of course, you can organise your new life as a student all by yourself. But you can also choose to become a member of a student association and experience your student life in the best possible way. Both options are equally fine, but it is nice to be able to choose. And this is possible! There are several student associations active in Velp.

In short, whatever you choose, nothing will stand in the way of an exciting time as a student!

Below some  websites of student associations:

Ambrosia is VHL’s International Student Association, created for all students from the English taught programmes in Velp to connect, share, network, exchange, collaborate and communicate.

In addition, there is a student association that is affiliated to the Forestry and Nature Management programme: LaarX, for enthusiastic students with ideas and initiatives of their own. 
We also have study organisation Terra Partum in Velp from the study programmes Garden and Landscape Architecture and Management of the Living Environment.

But of course there are many more student associations in Velp to explore:
