The set-up of the courses is pretty intense. As a student major in Economics, I personally feel that the faculty of economics of Utrecht University is extraordinary potential in the future. The practical sessions and lecture can sometimes benefits students at large extent. However, for some courses, the education quality are disappointing. The structure of the courses-selection system need to be adjusted. For the students who thinking of chase your degree in Utrecht, the advice in terms of academic aspect is that making most use of the facilities and staff of the institution. Don't expect much students activities and social involvement organized by student's union as you might expect in US or UK. show less
