Wing Yan Man (founder of 3310): “Why is there no school for grownups? Being 30, it doesn't feel like I have figured out how life works. There is so much I want to learn and should have learned to make my life easier. As a Millennial, I believe our skill set to survive differs from other generations. You don't have to teach us how to use a smartphone, but we do want to learn how to keep a healthy work-life balance. Being burnt out from my corporate job, the no. 1 millennial disease, I bumped into lots of these great lost-in-life dilemmas. But I didn't know where to go for help. Basically, I have learnt the hard way on how to pick yourself up again, how not to live by approval from others and how to be kinder to myself. Also on how to find my purpose and make full use my talents. With 3310, I aspire to help fellow Millennials with my experience to make our lives easier for ourselves.”

Would you like to share your experiences and tips on moving to and living in the Netherlands, or would you be keen to gain more information on moving and studying abroad? The Exchange Ambassadors at UvA are looking to work together with students to help each other and offer answers to many different questions regarding studying abroad.


As students who have either just come back from their studies abroad, and international students who are currently studying at UvA, we want to provide prospective students answers to various questions they have regarding studying abroad. We believe that it is important to share experiences to help others prepare for going abroad and improve the process. Would you like to share experiences or advice on studying in the Netherlands, how to adjust to life here? Or would you like to do so about your home country, town or university? Did you have any expectations on how the Netherlands or Amsterdam would be, and were these accurate or completely different? Do you have any tips on feelings regarding feeling left out or fitting in? Is there anything you wished you knew before going abroad, that you think would be worthwhile sharing with others?

Tips on how to adjust when returning back home from being abroad are also more than welcome. We are interested in both incoming and outcoming students, and these issues can be social, cultural, or academical.


If you would like to share your experiences, or have any questions please feel free to reach out to us via the Global Student Experience of University of Amsterdams' Facebook Page, on

We have recently started a new project, called 'People of UvA'. Stories of both incoming and outcoming students of/to the UvA during their exchange are shared here. Our first new post about this can be found here:

Feel free to share this project if you are or know a person who is or went on an exchange and reach out to us!
