Welcome to Leisure & Events Management!


In September, you will start your new study Leisure & Events management at NHL Stenden University of applied sciences.

In the week before your actual study start, the  StudyStartWeek, an introduction week for all new first year Leisure & Event Management students  is taking place. During the StudyStartWeek you will get to know your fellow students, the Leisure & Events Management Staff, NHL Stenden, our educational system and the city of Leeuwarden.  This week is all about getting to know the Leisure Environment in a fun way. The theme of the week is “Planet Leisure”, so be prepared for a spacetacular experience.
