As an arts school, WdKA has an international appeal. This results in increasing numers of foreign students that consider to come over to study here.

WdKA has long been a favourite among students of partner schools in WdKA’s extended international network that want to participate in an exchange programme – studying here for a couple of months. Nowadays, ever more students from abroad choose to take a full 4-year Bachelor course here. And of course, quite many participants of our Master courses come from abroad.

WdKA welcomes all of you. Its International Affairs Office (mr. Ad Borstlap & mrs. Cora Santjer) tries to help you in settling down here. In order to better serve potential international students and other people interested, it recently set up a special ‘exchange blog’. It contains information that may provide answers to frequently asked questions – on studying here, on WdKA’s admission procedures, on Rotterdam as an attractive place to study, and about The Netherlands and its culture.

The exchange blog also links to related relevant website by third parties.The exchange blog is to be found here.

On Saturday January 26, 2008 between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. WdKA is inviting you to its second Open Day of this academic year.

During the first Open Day of November 2007, no fewer than 2037 visitors came to have a look at WdKA. They were able to meet both staff and students of the various Bachelor and  Master courses, including the BA Leisure Management, that has been added to WdKA's curriculum in September 2007. Thus, visitors were able to learn more about the contents of the various courses and the educational strategies at WdKA.

'Take your portfolio to the Open Day'. That has been the slogan of the publicity campaign for the November 2007 Open Day. A good 103 students responded by bringing their portfolios and presenting it to WdKA staff to get a personal advice. Thus they could improve their portfolio to have better chances on admission.

For those of you that have missed the November 2007 Open Day, WdKA is offering a second chance. On Saturday January 26, 2008 we shall open our doors between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. We hope that on that occasion we may be welcoming you as well. Full information on the day's program is to be published shortly on this site.

See you on January 26 2008!
