Desislava graduated from Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen in 2015 with a degree in International Communication. She joined IHS in early 2014 as an intern and continued to become a Marketing & Communications Officer a year later. Desislava is from Bulgaria but moved to the Netherlands 4 years ago to pursue her higher education. Studying and living in the highly international environment of Groningen sparked Desislava’s interest to stay and work in the higher education field and help other international students by advising them on their study choices. She is currently busy with her MSc in Media and Business at the Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC).
Within the IHS Communications team, Desislava makes sure that the prospective students are sufficiently informed about the IHS programmes, application process details and requirements. She is the main contact person for potential students from Europe and Latin America.
