Course recommendations
the system could be made more proficient, especially in relation to teaching methods. coming from a university that has a slightly different teaching strategy i would say that the length of periods could be adjusted too.

Personal comments
access to resources could be upgraded, especially with reference to internet access. academic life was interesting though, with teachers being available for consultation, or just general discussion in most cases.

Personal spending habits
the cost of living in the netherlands is slightly higher than back home if currency exchange is taken into consideration. traveling was an equally important experience of studying abroad in in relation to the amount of traveling done and the places visited, travel expenses seem to be less. eficient transportation systems and access to many european countries and cities naturally added to this perception.

Personal comments
if you enjoy drinking, start at your place with some friends. alcohol proves to be extremely expensive in the pubs and bars.

Personal comments
the language of instruction was english although local students were instructed in their native tongue. i was at ease with the local language as i speak afrikaans, a derivative from primitive dutch. most of the words currently used in dutch are the same as in afrikaans, so communication was not a problem at all. it proved, however, to be equally difficult to get a proper grasp of the language as i am accustomed to grammar used in afrikaans.

Housing
Type of housing: A room exchange
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: A room exchange
Why?
aside from the satisfactory conditions mentioned above, living with other students proved to be an educational experience in itself, as relating to personal growth and life.

accommodation options varied between room exchange and apartment houses. both types of facilities proved to be quite favourable, with advantages and disadvantages in both. students were allocated to accommodation types without choice or request though. overall, it was a pleasant experience though.
