BSB is the VSAE's partner for all study guidance related to the study Actuarial Sciences and Econometrics (AE). For VSAE members, they offer study counseling in various forms for all subjects of our study program at very affordable rates.
Fibonacci Courses (Ficos) are available for the most difficult courses of the study. These Fico's consist of two parts. First of all, there are vidcasts online every week about the material of that week. This is extensively covered by two econometrics PhD students. The second part is the seminars. These take place in weeks 6 and 7 of the period and both last 2 hours. During the seminars, difficult tutorial questions and old exam questions are discussed. These seminars take place on the Roeterseiland campus, but will also be recorded. It is also possible to purchase only the vidcasts.
The Personal Tutors of FBSB have verifiable experience in teaching and many Personal Tutors also work as tutorial lecturers at the FEB. In addition to the Fico's, FBSB offers tailor-made individual tutoring. Of course, you can also put together your own group where you determine the frequency of the lessons and the group size. This way you also have a solution if you and some fellow students threaten to get into trouble two weeks before the exam. By redeeming the VSAE discount code, you as a VSAE member pay a much cheaper rate. For the vidcasts only, this rate is €34.90 instead of €39.95 and for the seminars you pay €11.90/hour instead of € 12.95/hour. As a first-year VSAE student, you will receive an extra discount of 25% for the Fico’s. The entire offer can be found on the FBSB website. The discount code can be found under 'my VSAE'.
In addition, FBSB offers different forms of thesis help. You can choose for a single consult if you get stuck on a specific subject. When you want more intensive guidance you can take a package of multiple consults during a longer period. By purchasing their Final Check service it is even possible to get feedback on your complete thesis. With this Final Check package you can correct the last mistakes and process additional feedback before handing in the last version of your thesis.
