Course recommendations
Unfortunately it wasn't the content of the courses that was a problem, rather the communication between teacher to teacher, and teacher to student. Nonetheless , the course I felt I learnt the most and enjoyed the most was European Union law.

Yes - More structure and organisation within the institution. Sometimes the teacher did not know that they were going to teach you until one week into the start of the course.

Personal recommendation
For the university itself, I wouldn't recommend anyone to come here, but the people I was studying with made it a wonderful experience. I don't feel I learnt that nuch academically, but I learnt alot about other cultures and people, so for me it was worthwhile.

Final comments
Buy a travle pass for the Netherlands, you can travle with upto 3 other people with a 40% reduction at anytime, so it's good until the borders, but then you have to pay full fare once you've crossed the borders.....Sorry!!

To be completely honest, I learnt more dutch outside in social settings rather than at the university. I was supposed to learn dutch language as part of my course but they were unable to find a teacher.

Personal comments
The accomodation itself was fine, however if there were problem, i.e. Damp, or water leaking the association took a long time to rectify the problems. However this was the housing association and not the university.
