Personal assessment
Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Type of housing: student residence
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? I would choose the same student residence again as it's close to university and most other exchange students live there too
Personal comments:
I stayed in the International House. Although the rent is high and the facilities aren't the best I would recommend it to everyone as all exchange students live there and it's very close to the university. Alternatively, Casa Erasmus is across the road and cheaper, so that is also a good option. Housing is arranged through the international office, one can say preferences in terms of type of housing and prices.

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
I have chosen two master classes, as Erasmus University is a well-known one because of its master program. Moreover I have chosen a complementary elective about Tourism. Erasmus is a really good experience for me, to do the projects with an international team with getting the help of a multinational company in Holland.

A bit annoying.
Didn't like it.
Exams throughout the course

Nightlife, Food, Overall: was the same price as at home.
Housing, Telephone: was less expensive than at home.
Personal comments:
The appartments offered by the University are expensive, it is not very hard to find cheaper (and better) living if you try.

Meet as many internationals as you can... they always invite u afterwards so u can travel more...And as a final comment for the ones in 2003: The MORE OR LESS group of 2003 will live forever
