In the beginning it can be a little hard... homesickness... loneliness... but after a few days everything turns better and the Erasmus experience becomes unique and excellent for a personal development and an exchange of cultures and experiences.

It could be better if the teachers can consider about opening more elective courses for foreign students.

The weather is not so satisfying. However, life in the Netherlands is comparatively comfortable. Small city but you can find people from other places and countries. You will find that you will fall in love with this environment soon.

Actually, I am fatisfied with what the school did for us. it is not easy to control or to manage these people simultanouesly, but it is good for students to learn how to communicate with others and to be tolerant and independent.

In general the campus appartments were good but the University did not take a lot of care in keeping it like that, solving or avoiding some problems, and quality was progressively falling down.

I like to go to Irish pub and the American Dream in the city center sometimes with friends to celebrate some special events like birtherday etc. For cafe, we normal went to the Engels near Central Station to meet someone or just have fun there. the Blaak square is really amazing because of the achetechure style.

In the university as the language of instruction was English, we could speak easily with all students and teachers. Outside the university, Dutch people speak English fluently so it was not a problem to be understood in any situations and topics. They can easily switch of spoken language.
