Course recommendations
Group work is essential to complete the study, therefore I recommend to work in a group where you can interact with students from different countries. The advantage to work in such a group is to be trained working with people with different background, thoughts, behaviour and culture but also breaking other boundaries. You will experience a lot of difficulties, but if you are able to manage these difficulties and give good performance, this will be an assert for your future.

Personal spending habits
Telephone cost was less than at home because I was in touch with my friends via internet. Via internet, you could send email or even talk to your friends. Housing cost was defenately higher than at home, because the Netherlands has higher housing cost, due to the fact, that real estate is more expensive than in Germany

If you travel a lot within the Netherlands, I would advise you to get a "Korting Kart". This card will cut of your travelling cost up to 45%

Personal comments
People in the Netherlands are very opened. Therefore I never had to face any difficulties to address to anyone, neither in the university nor in my daily life in the host country. The main factor is only to overcome yourself and open up yourself to new environments and situations in your life. There is no need to be shy or afraid of strangers but to show interest will show you progress in any kind of situation.

Personal comments
The housing of this university enables students from all over the world to get to know eachother better. At the common room and the sports area of this building, making friends was easy, moreover students supported eachother thus I felt like being a member of a big family, where I could trust and ask for help and support at any time.

Personal recommendation
Try to mix with people from other countries, not just your own language speaker. You have the chance to meet Indonesians, whose culture and lifestyle is completely different. Take advantage of it!

holland is not about the acedemic life, its about how you grow as a person. This will translate into priority building and social and cultural awareness.
