I DO is an innovative and student co-created course that you can take in your second year of your bachelor studies in addition to your regular courses. Participation is voluntary and by application only. If you successfully complete the course, you will be awarded 15 ECs which count towards your study progress in the third year of your bachelor. This means that your I DO credits contribute towards the 60 ECs you need in your third year. Completing the I DO course is therefore similar to completing a minor.
The grades you receive also count towards your GPA for your whole Bachelor’s degree programme, although your participation is during the second year of your bachelor programme.
I DO connects ambitious and open-minded bachelor students with international NGOs through an academic programme that equips them with additional skills and tools to best propel the NGOs’ developments forward. Students will work in teams of five to support one NGO in achieving its mission. Our partner NGOs tackle societal challenges all over the world, ranging from water scarcity in Zimbabwe to fighting poverty in South Africa.
I DO is organised and led by a team of students, RSM faculty members and staff. This structure ensures that student feedback and experiences are immediately translated into the continuous development of the course to enable real and significant impact.
