My name is Cristina de Borst- Cristescu and I am a lecturer at Fontys University of Applied Science in Venlo. I was born in Romania and I left 20 years ago to study. I found my dream job teaching. I love my students and I do my very best to help them develop and become the best they can be. My area of expertise is Communication. I have a Master in English and one in Education.
I live my dream while doing what I love most. Fontys is the right place not only for students but for lecturers as well. Since I started working here in 2012 I had the opportunity to develop even further, moving way from being a traditional teacher and becoming a coach in the Project Based Learning program (PBL). I took part in different coaching courses and visited numerous conferences and lecturers’ exchange programs.
I am the Key Account Manager for Romania and every year I promote my university in Romania. I believe in what I do and in the opportunity my university can offer you. My relationship with my students exceeds the classroom. I feel especially responsible for the Romanian students so we try to keep in touch as much as we can. I am very proud of the community we have created here.
If you want to study in a non-conventional way with coaches that can think outside the box, in an open environment, come and join us. You will enjoy the ride!
