Martijn your future study will be more oriented at finance and economics then mine I guess. I'm more into marketing and export and of course fluent in several languages. I study across the street from your future uni
btw don't you need a high average to get in there? That's what a friend of mine told me.
Yeah, I know it will. And I actually like export, marketing and languages more, but I really want to go to University rather than HBO. I am fluent in German, French and English, and Spanish shouldn't be THAT hard to learn, so I thought it would be nice. But this study program will emphasize financial aspects more I know. The accounting part I'll hate, but I have been told it's not such a big part of the program. I have been to the Erasmus Najaardsdag to get a look at what it's like and although I hated the amount of guys there (I get along much better with girls, really
), especially those snobbish guys with Ralph Lauren polos and such, I knew I should give it a try. I guess I'll try to create some sort of political balance there
Me, a GroenLinks member (Dutch Green party) versus the VVD ugh!
It's not really true that you need a high average grade, although entering the program is quite complicated. There is a decentralized selection procedure, meaning that 50% of the spots available, that is 200 of the 400, will be assigned in that procedure. To take part, you have to write a motivation letter, which I have already done. This month and next month they'll be judging the letters and hopefully I'll be in the program with my letter. The only problem is, that they prefer people with an international background.
If you have a pass grade of 8 or higher, you can enter the program too. The remaining spots will be assigned by lot. With my school exams (former "schoolonderzoeken") now over, I have a pass grade of 8 or higher, so I'm still hoping that I'll be in the program without any problems
But I am not motivated to study for my finals now and I think it is virtually impossible to score an 8 for economics and mathematics and geography. It's possible for History, French, German and English though. I'll just keep my fingers crossed
I hope the link helped out. Didn't you search yourself with Google?
