HOUSING    
by Maurits, HES Amsterdam, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Business Studies, University Agreement
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? The apartments arranged included everything a student needs, so there is no need to change.
Personal comments:
The campus is really poor housing. You have to share your 7m2 room with someone else and the bathroom with 20 others living at that floor. You do not lay on a mtras but on a sort of wooden shelve. But the apartments that the school arranges are pretty good. Its clean, spacious and everyone has his/her own bedroom and sometimes even their own bathroom.

Language of instruction: English
Was learning English a key decision factor?
No, it wasn't.
How much did you improve your English?
My level before: No problems in any areas (including slang)
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
Overall level of english is lower than in the Netherlands. At university I have not experienced any problems besides explaining myself more than once towards local students. Concerning local people in shops or restaurants: learn cantonees a.s.a.p. I have not experienced any problems in government institutions.

EXPENSES    
by elsas, Hanzehogeschool, Hogeschool van Groningen, Groningen, Netherlands
Business Studies, University Agreement
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:
Government assistance
Other sources of funding:
Government assistance
Work opportunities:
I didn't explore any work options
Personal spending habits:
Things are much cheaper there, at least when you adapt to local foodhabits for instance. Cooking Western food and buying the ingredients would have cost me a lot. Travelling was surprisingly cheap taken into account distances and so! Prices for drinks in bars were even more expensive than Europe.
Nightlife: was more expensive than at home.
Housing: was the same price as at home.
Food, Travel, Overall, Telephone: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
Go out for food, don't cook yourself at least if you like the local cuisine! When booking a trip make sure you check prises at different travel agency's, some are not sincere.
