New Bachelor coordinatorTuesday 5 December 2017 12:00
To our regret Stefanie has decided to leave the UT. During her maternity leave her duties were taken care of in a very professional and yet very pleasant way by Jitske. Jitske has a new position as exchange officer. On behalf of the Educational Management Team I thank Jitske for her efforts and wish her lots of success in her new position.
In the mean time we have been very lucky to find a new bachelor coordinator: Yael Veenstra Konzizky. Below Yael introduces herself. We warmly welcome her and wish her lots of success with her new duties. Starting in the middle of the academic year will at times be not so easy.
Introduction - Shalom everyone, excited to be here!
My name Is Yael Veenstra Konzizky and I am the ‘new’ Bachelor coordinator in Applied Mathematics for the coming 3 months. I am replacing Jitske Rijken, hoping to be of great use as she was.
I’m originally from sunny Tel Aviv and 10 years ago I came to the Netherlands following my heart. Until now I have been busy with settling in and raising a family and now I am ready to be back at my favorite place – an International sophisticated environment.
My academic background (Bachelor) is in Chemistry (extended physics) and I have always been fascinated in technology, computers, science, theories, equations and numbers.
I’ll be happy to be of any help for students and teachers and to become an active productive part of the team.
See you soon,

Stefanie Kraanen, our bachelor coordinator, is on maternity leave, so she will be out of office for the coming while. That's why the study temporarily assigned Jitske Rijken as such. You can read all about her in the Educational newsletter, also where you can find her. The newsletter can be found at Education > News > 18 May 2017
We wish Stefanie all the best and we trust in Jitske as our new B.C.!
