Just make sure you have a budgte and you record what your daily expenditure is. Also there are plenty of odd jobs around to do for students, so part-time job is no problem to get at all.

Personal recommendation
Its a very open and social university, but the classes you receive are still quite good. If you notice they are too easy, you can easily upgrade to a more advanced class. The language classes are quite low in standard, maybe thats because in the Netherlands people start talking foreign languages much earlier

Final comments
Make sure you get a railway discount card if you intent to travel from and to the airport in London to fly with ryanair. Also look for flights quite a time in advance as they are a lot cheapier. With ryanair you are able to fly very cheaply to west-europe. (50 euro average return-ticket price)

Personal comments
Campus housing seems to be more for the party-people. Alhtough i dont mind a part once in a while, i wouldnt want to be in an ever-ongoing party....even during the exams.
