What course and any specific reasons why you chose Rotterdam? I have seen a few British students at Erasmus both undergrad and postgrad.

Well the course is called "MSc in Maritime Economics and Logistics".
I am not sure yet if I will choose Rotterdam but it is very possible.. The reason is that since i want to be employed in the shipping sector,
Rotterdam provides good prospects because of the location (the port). Additionally as far as I know the Netherlands is a nice place to study and generally to live.

OK, your specialised MSc points to Rotterdam as not many unis offer this course. As you pointed out, the port location and position as Europe's top operator gives the programme a competitive advantage. Would you focus on the logistics side or risk management part? The other MSc shipping I know is at City, but tuition costs an arm and leg. the Dutch are more reasonable with tuition fee for EU students. Erasmus is possibly Netherland's leading econ department as many lecturers are trained or taught abroad. The one year MSc programme is similar to the UK and taught in English. Living costs tend to be affordable.

Has anybody here went to Piet Zwart Institute ? It said that it's part of Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences. I'm applying for MIARD (Master of Interior Architecture and Retail Design) at the institute. Im just curious about the reputation of the school since i've only seen it on their website.
Maybe some of you have info that you might like to share
