In 2014, Daan graduated at The Hague University with a Bachelor of Education. He was awarded with the ‘Academic Medal’ as became the best student of his year.
Straight after his graduation he moved to London to work for ‘one of the leading boarding schools in the United Kingdom’. After four amazing years at the school, it was time for something new. A year earlier, the idea to start a consultancy agency began after Daan was approached multiple times from families in The Netherlands to help and advise Dutch students on their way into a UK Boarding school. These positive experiences have been the start of DB International Study. Daan has specialized himself to help families with one of the most important decisions for their children.
Daan lived in London for seven years, after he left The Netherlands at the age of seventeen to Capetown for three years to follow his dream to become a professional sportsman. After that he has lived and played sports in, Colombo, Sydney, Spain and England.
In 2017, Daan started with his Master’s Degree in Sports Directorship at the University of Salford in Manchester. He hopes to finish this in December 2019.
Travelling? Studying in the UK? Daan can talk from experience and would love to help you with your next step(s) in life and that could be the start of a (international) ambitious career.
