I could have chosen England for improving my English, but as i already knew England and as i knew that Dutch people spoke English, i decided to go study there! And i never encountered any communication problems!

Course recommendations
In order to have more free time (for instance for an internship), it is more interesting to take most of the courses during the first semester! Students really have to choose the Music Business Class! It was my favourite one!

A bar in Haarlem called "Van Stoffelen", "Melkweg" in Amsterdam, People don't have to miss "Queen's day" and all the free parties! And when summer is coming, don't miss all the bars next to the Beach in Zandvoort, especially the "Woodstock"
