5. Dedicated students 

Your time as a student consists of more than just studying. At NHH, you will become part of an active and diverse student environment, and you will have a multitude of opportunities to take part.

The student association NHHS consists of more than a hundred interest groups. In addition to getting to know your fellow students, you will be provided with a valuable learning arena where you can apply what you learn in the classroom to real-life.

Indeed, many of the students emphasise the combination of academic knowledge from their studies and the experience they gain from being involved in the student association as a great asset to their education.
