PHILIPSBURG – On Thursday, July 20, Denica Daniel, a representative of HAN HUNTU, held an information session for potential students.
HAN HUNTU is an organization started for Dutch Caribbean students interested in pursuing their studies at the University of Applied Sciences of Arnhem & Nijmegen (Hogeschool Arnhem en Nijmegen HAN).
The event was facilitated by the local chapter of Unified St. Maarten Connection (USC) and the University of St. Martin (USM).
During the information session Daniel provided an overview of the support HAN HUNTU offers to students and answered questions about registering at the respected municipality (gemeente) upon arrival, opening a bank account and securing insurance. This information was extremely valuable for “free mover” students, who do not have the support of the Department of Study Financing to assist them in regulating these issues.
