HOUSING

Personal assessment
Cost
KEY:
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I'm used to living in an apartment and i prefer the lifestyle and atmosphere of a place where 2-4 people are living together
Personal comments:
The accomodation was to a good standard. The university has an agreement with a independent housing agency (Vivare) they arrange your accomodation and all contracts are with them. So beyond the assurance you will have a place to stay the university has little influence over your accomodation. The agent is competant, but this was the Netherlands, lots of red tape so things did take long to organise if there was any problems (i.e. maintanence)

Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources

Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
If you plan to study for a whole year, it is possible to obtain a double degree. This will give you advanced options regarding courses. If there is any course that is offered at the University it is possible to take, even if the course is outside of the program. The director of courses is very helpful.

Personal comments:
For me a choose the Ntherlands because i liked the country and the people. It was the only partner institution of my university where i could do a double degree. So my choice to some degree was taken away from me. I either wanted to go abroad, or i didn't. But i really wanted to go to the Netherlands. As for communication, Dutch is not the hardest language to pick up words from being English. However, the International business course was in English and the students i was socialising, very fee were dutch. This meant the opportunity to learn dutch was limited. Using it is difficult to, a Dutch person will know you are not native and use the opportunity to practice their english...i liked this not because it made my life easier, although it did. But, it makes you relaxed in a foreign country. People in Holland are not too bothered that you are a foreigner in 'their' country. Our neighbours in the apartment building were of all races and not students, but all were very friendly and that was nice too. It is nice to have that experience when you go abraod.

EXPENSES    
by tomwest, De Montfort University, Leicester, United Kingdom
Business Studies, Erasmus
The accessibility of student needs
Second-hand text books
KEY:
Very easy.
Minimal effort.
Accessible but required effort.
Almost impossible.
Second-hand household items
Computers / Internet
Administrative
Money from home
Main source of funding:
Personal savings
Other sources of funding:
Family
An ERASMUS grant
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
The Netherlands is cheaper to live as a student than it is in the UK. Perhaps this would be different when living and working? When one does not have to taake into account of Income and direct taxes and strong pound means the price of goods are relatively cheaper abroad. Saying that, removing exchange rates from the equasion Holland is still cheaper in real terms in many areas. The only area where there is parity is when going out, bars and clubs are quite expensive and comparible in price to UK.
Nightlife, Telephone: was the same price as at home.
Food, Travel, Overall, Housing: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
In Arnhem the bus service is good. So use it. Buy a Strippen card, this will give you more journeys for less than paying everytime you use the bus. Buy these from newsagents, and try using your ISIC to get the student price. This is a further reduction. However, you are not really allowed this as you will not hold a Dutch Student travel card. Depending on the driver (most don't ask) you will get away with it because you can claime you are an ignorant foreigner who didn't know. Buy a train card too. for 100 guilders/30 (not sure what it is now in Euros) you will get reductions on you ticket fares. This lasts for a year and allows the card holder and up to 4 others to travel. All benefit from reduced fares. Its very easy to visit places in Germany and beyond from Arnhem. The mainline train from Amsterdam to Frankfurt stops at Arnhem. Koln is near by to and is wortha visit.
