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: A room exchange
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: A room exchange
Why? aside from the satisfactory conditions mentioned above, living with other students proved to be an educational experience in itself, as relating to personal growth and life.
Personal comments:
accommodation options varied between room exchange and apartment houses. both types of facilities proved to be quite favourable, with advantages and disadvantages in both. students were allocated to accommodation types without choice or request though. overall, it was a pleasant experience though.

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
the system could be made more proficient, especially in relation to teaching methods. coming from a university that has a slightly different teaching strategy i would say that the length of periods could be adjusted too.



My opinion of the university assessment
Exams at end of course
KEY:
Liked it.
It was alright.
A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course
Essays and/or projects at the end of course.
Essays and/or projects throughout the course
Overall
Personal comments:
access to resources could be upgraded, especially with reference to internet access. academic life was interesting though, with teachers being available for consultation, or just general discussion in most cases.

Language difficulties
Social
KEY:
No problems.
I coped pretty well.
Sometimes it was difficult.
It was a constant struggle.
Educational
Administrative / Institutional
Overall
Language of instruction: English
Local language was: Different than language of instruction.
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
Was learning the local language a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my knowledge
How much did you improve your local language?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
the language of instruction was english although local students were instructed in their native tongue. i was at ease with the local language as i speak afrikaans, a derivative from primitive dutch. most of the words currently used in dutch are the same as in afrikaans, so communication was not a problem at all. it proved, however, to be equally difficult to get a proper grasp of the language as i am accustomed to grammar used in afrikaans.

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:
Other
Other sources of funding:
Family
Personal savings
Work opportunities:
It was not legal for me to work
Personal spending habits:
the cost of living in the netherlands is slightly higher than back home if currency exchange is taken into consideration. traveling was an equally important experience of studying abroad in in relation to the amount of traveling done and the places visited, travel expenses seem to be less. eficient transportation systems and access to many european countries and cities naturally added to this perception.
Food, Nightlife, Overall, Telephone, Housing: was more expensive than at home.
Travel: was the same price as at home.
Personal comments:
if you enjoy drinking, start at your place with some friends. alcohol proves to be extremely expensive in the pubs and bars.
