    As I understand, during the first semester all 3rd year IBA students have to choose between an internship, a RSM minor or an exchange? Is that correct? If it is, what did you do for the first semester?

    What's the workload like in RSM? Do you have enough leisure time?

    How's the student life? Are other RSM students friendly? What kind of student activities are there in university (like societies, sport clubs etc.)? Are there any sporting facilities for students on campus?

    What's life like in Rotterdam? Is it hard to find a part time job? What's the nightlife like?

    Yups that's true! all 3rd year students have to choose between these three things. I choose for an internship in Shanghai, which was absolutely amazing. I didn't want to stay in NL nor would I choose for a minor. A bit waste of your time in my opinion. Ultimately I have chosen for an internship because you can go on exchange in your master year as well. I would prefer an internship abroad and an exchange experience. It makes your CV look much better! Well studying at RSM is hardworking, don't underestimate it but you will have defo enough free time for yourself. Also, RSM has got loads of networking events, crazy parties, special guest lectures (I went to Steve Jobs' guest lecture, it was SO AWESOME ), company weeks/management weeks, study trips, ski trips etc for it students.

    Student life is great but I recommend you to find a good balance between school and fun We do have sporting facilities for students on the campus but they are rebuilding the campus right now, i assume the campus will get better, it will only take a very long time ._.

    I'm not sure what kind of part-time job you are looking for? I think most employers will prefer Dutch students since they speak Dutch but I'm sure you can find a part-time job in Rdam. I mean there are sooooo many students at RSM who don't speak Dutch and they've still survived lol.. Nightlife is defo great in Rotterdam, loads of parties and bars. Sometimes a bit pricey but yeah thats the nightlife =p

    Rent is about 300-400 euros pm, compared to other EU countries like UK or france it is quite okay I think.. I'm not really sure about the term dates for the undergraduate program. You should take a look at their website.

    I worked for a distribution company which was quite interesting. Our biggest client was Mediamarkt and Mediamarkt depends heavily on its distribution channels. For example all the promotion/discount campaigns are actually part of our job. Mediamarkt just makes the posters and ads lol..

    The whole IBEB and IBA programs are in English. Basically almost everyone can speak English in Holland (just with a funny Dutch accent lol) so nothing much to worry about. You'll enjoy your time in NL
