The program curriculum may be deemed satisfactory; however, it is important to consider other intangible qualities that hold greater significance, such as the caliber of students, employment prospects, reputation, staff expertise, alumni influence, and prestige. Regrettably, the program falls short in many of these aspects. In particular, the chances and opportunities for securing employment in the field of arbitration within the Netherlands itself are quite slim. All the firms based in the Netherlands typically require candidates to possess a Dutch law degree as a minimum qualification for positions in arbitration-related fields. Therefore, it is advisable to pursue studies in arbitration in either France or the UK, as the educational institutions there have stronger connections with law firms and offer better employment prospects.

For international students seeking to study international arbitration, the Netherlands is not the ideal destination. However, if your goal is solely to acquire a degree and return home, the arbitration program at EUR (Erasmus University Rotterdam) can be considered a decent choice. Nevertheless, if given the opportunity to start afresh, I would personally opt for SciencesPo in Paris. The institution is renowned for its arbitration program and offers superior prospects for students.
