    Flexible Studies at UvA

    I am currently studying Economics and Business Economics. I love my studies, because I can explore deep economical concepts by myself with help of great lecturers and tutors. Indeed, studying at UvA is mainly self-study and creative intelligent self-work. I love that concept, where I have a lot of flexibility to pursue my hobbies and extracurricular activities.

    Don't study Economics as an international student here

    You are nothing but a number to them. They don’t care if you succeed or fail, they already got your money and there are just too many students for them to care about any of them. They will welcome any student with the ability to pay from any country in the world, they won’t warn you that student housing is nearly impossible to find and outrageously expensive. I spent several months homeless and sleeping on friends’ couches due to the housing shortage and no one at the university cared enough to even respond to my emails asking what services were available to homeless students. They just don’t care about you or your educational pursuits, they just want your sweet sweet international tuition fees. The other big issue is that the academic standards are just all over the place, some teachers seem to be incredibly rigorous and mathematical and others entirely theoretical. Some professors have some weird grudge against helping students be prepared for the exam, it’s like they think that if you had been paying attention then you should already know everything there is to know about the subject so there is no need to review the important concepts. I just wanted to know what I needed to focus my energy on but most teachers treated me like I was asking to cheat when I asked for an old exam or practice test.

    They took 1 year of my life and left me with 3 miserable years

    I absolutely disliked my time at UvA, I studied there for a year at the economics and business faculty. I didn’t like how students were supposed to do all the work with almost no support from the faculty. Studying at UvA was more like working at a job where there was absolutely no support. In the end I think especially for bachelors degree studying at UvA was the worst decision of my entire life. It was extremely expensive as as international student and the services provided by university weren’t worth it. However the only plus point was I got to meet with a lot of people since the course I was a part of in the first year had almost a 1000 students. So I got to meet a lot of people from all over the world and made lots of friends which I will stay in touch forever.
