The diversity and broadness of courses offered within IBA allowed me to explore where my interests lie and keep my options open for the future. Additionally, I felt accepted in and connected to the international environment offered both at the university and in the city of Rotterdam. I can assure you that the student life on offer at EUR will be above and beyond your expectations. From student organisations, internships, side jobs and projects, to sports and parties, I have never found myself bored at home – mind you, that was even during the pandemic.
