During your stay you will be appointed a buddy (a Dutch student) that can help you out with all sorts of practical questions. Of course lecturers, staff and the International Office can also assist you whenever you have a question. The Netherlands is known for having an egalitarian hierarchical structure so teachers and staff are easily approachable.
When you make use of our Housing Office you can be sure to be living in the same building with other international students of Rotterdam UAS. As students arrive here from all corners of the world connections and friendships are easily made and you’ll readily become a part of this international community.
Another advantage of Rotterdam over other cities in the Netherlands is that Rotterdam is known for its large amount of festivals and events. From the International Film Festival to the Summer carnival parade to the North Sea jazz festival or sports events like the Rotterdam marathon, there is always something to see or do.
