Student Life

Campus life

Rotterdam is truly a world city. Home to the largest port in Europe, Rotterdam has global trade and transport links. The city's history of international trade has helped to shape what is now seen as the typical 'roll up your sleeves and get cracking' Rotterdam mentality. Known as the Netherlands' ultimate festival city, Rotterdam buzzes with activity all year round. Cultural, sporting, and music events are plentiful, while the diversity of cultures means that the cuisine is truly global, too.

Student clubs

A great way to get to know other students at Rotterdam Business School, and to have a lot of fun, is to join RISA - Rotterdam International Student Association.

Each year RISA organises lots of activities for both Dutch and international students alike, including social dinners and parties (boat party, beer-pong), international trips, sporting events, guest lectures etc. Visit the RISA website for the latest news and events.

Student Reviews

Fantastic University
Anonymous rated 1 out of 5 stars

I get the quality study in the Rotterdam University of applied science. The faculty of the University is also very friendly but I think the university need a strong faculties also. And very short courses are here for study.

Good studies, less than perfect execution
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Not well thought out with lots of significant differences between levels of knowledge of lecturers which means that there is a high imbalance between the ease of studying of students and their knowledge
