You can easily cope with English in almost all situations, so there was no real need to study Dutch if you didn't want to.

Personal spending habits
Food in general is cheaper in Holland than in Finland but I spent no money on it in Finland, which is why I personally categorised it as more expensive than at home. It was relatively the same case with housing and telephony. Travel is less expensive because the student accommodation is quite close to both the school and Amsterdam centre.

Final comments
Be prepared for anything, have lots of initiative - the teachers won't do the work for you. Also, don't get too acquainted with all the "fun" you can have in Amsterdam.
