" Good courses, some really good teachers, administration could improve. Amsterdam is really expensive, finding an apartment is close to impossible (change of law that makes it even harder now). However, still a great place to study and I'd definitely do it again. What i loved about the program were the mandatory internship and the semester abroad at an international partner university. "

" In general, I think the classes are nice, although some teachers (especially Dutch teachers) have insufficient knowledge of the English language. Compared to other Universities, Universities of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands are less well managed I feel like, this one is no different. It can be difficult to find someone to help you with certain questions you might have. Although the exchange office can be a big help if you come from abroad and you would have fewer problems as an oversea student. Hanging out with students from everywhere in the world is nice and students organize plenty of get-togethers. The school itself is mostly focussed on education and does not offer many options for socializing and exercising. Amsterdam is a bustling city though with plenty to see and do. If you have the option I would advise going to a University instead of a University of Applied Sciences, the academic level will be higher and less practical but the facilities will likely be better.

" In general, Amsterdam University of Applied sciences is a nice university to study and offered a lot of opportunities. I did a bachelor and enrolled for a master without any problems. A lot of my fellow students in my bachelor had no problem in finding a job after graduating. "

" The UvA is a nice University. The location is located close to the metro and train stations, so it's accesible for students that don't live in Amsterdam. The level of education is good, although you don't receive a lot of personal attention. "

" I learned a lot at this school about the workplace. They really prepare you for real life and you have to do many practical assignments. However, sometimes I did have bad experience with student support. There have been many times where it was unorganized and the staff was not helpful at all. Moreover, if you are an international student you will probably get ignored by Dutch students (this is a cultural thing) but the lecturer's English is also not sufficient enough so you might encounter problems with that. The classes are interesting and I do think that I have gained a lot of experience for when I graduate, but it is not international or organized enough to call it an "International School of Business" "
