Not only in the Netherlands, but also abroad.” Nollen states that Inholland is very proud to be one of StuComm’s first customers. “We are very happy to work alongside StuComm and react to the desires of our students. We are focusing to help and support our students, not only with our new portal and the StudentsApp of StuComm, but we also provide additional support for our students.”
