Language of instruction


My three-year experience at the University of Aruba was awesome. What I loved the most was the diversity in its students. Meeting new people from countries makes this university truly an international university. The University of Aruba provided students like me with unique opportunities to get international experience and connect with people in the industry. Probably the best opportunity I got was the adventure of a lifetime to the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, and Utah. To sum it all up, you do not need to study at a university outside of Aruba to get the international experience.
