The school teaches in a new approaching way of education. Practical materials were handed down to the students, realistic case studies and real-life assignments are all included. However; the performance of the students are quite below the average because of the lack of competitiveness. There are less than 40% of the students are aiming for high grades, the rest are aiming for enough passing grades. This could somehow become cons for the school because students are not motivated enough to try their best.View more
RBS is a very diverse school environment with dedicated and experienced staff who are willing to engage students in very practical experiences. Students are given the chance to develop themselves academically and professionally by solving real life company issues through graded projectsView more
Terrible experience. NOT WORTH IT.
The first year most people left, not because they failed but because they could not believe what was going on. Improvised courses, most courses do not have a curriculum, a vague and flawed grading system, most teachers can’t speak better English than their students, etc. Overall, a disaster, the level of education is lower than a high school.
Personally, I stayed because it was extremely easy to graduate.
But the worst part? The school is run by incompetent people who only worry about government subsidies and hiding their negligence and that of their colleagues (teachers). In the past 4 years, only 2 people ever cared about doing the right thing. The other teachers only care about hiding from the accreditation system. Seriously, they are scared of them because they know how bad they are, not only as teachers but as decent human beings.
It is a madhouse. I have been studying at Erasmus University and have multiple friends across the Netherlands and other countries also studying at research or applied universities but this one takes the cake.
For example, during my internship (which you have to find all by yourself without any help), my boss could not believe what was going on. I had started working but somehow the administration had no time to sign the contract. I kept emailing them and even my boss emailed then. Until one day she calls them and the administration says that THEY GAVE MY CONTRACT TO A FRIEND OF MINE. Naturally, I contacted them to figure out why they did so and who they gave it to. They only answered with the contract attached to the email. To this day I asked all my friends and I still do not know who they gave my contract to. But this is only a very light example, it gets much much worse, just ask thesis students.
in conclusion, NOT WORTH IT, I REGRET EVER COMING TO THIS PLACE. I only stayed because I had previously failed somewhere else and could not handle failing again.View more
