“Netherlands, the country where there are more bikes than people. I am very proud to say that I learnt riding a bike after coming to Rotterdam and I found this city very lively with welcoming citizens. Being an EU-HEM student and meeting new people from all over the world is the best part of this programme.” Samral Idrees (Cohort 2018 – 2020)
