Personal spending habits
Food and housing is much more expensive than they're in China. I don't use a telephone in Holland, thus, I don't spend money on it. I like travelling, so I spend more or less same money on my hobbies. Nightlife is also same because I don't go so often.

Personal comments
Usually, I brought my necessaries from cheapest supermarket, like AlDI, LIDL, so on. Also, if possible, to do some part-time job is a way to earn some money. Besides, I'm negotiating with my Dutch friends, because I hope we can run a company together and do business internationally.

Housing
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why?
I would repeat my experience because the best part was sharing house with other students but i would recomend to the housing company to try to improve their services (there is always a problem with any facility in almost every house).

International Tourism Management NHL-Stenden
Marlies E
Netherlands, Undergraduate
Tourism, 2021
Overall
The course called International Tourism Management covers many aspects of the tourism profession. It consists of four year, which are all split up in 4 modules. During a module, a specific aspect of the tourism industry is covered. The information can be obtained during lectures, given by teachers and tourism professionals. Examples of topics are marketing, management, intercultural sensitivity and (developing) a tourism product. There is a high focus on sustainability and ethical behaviour. The way of learning is specific for this institute, as the students are split up in small groups of around 12 students. In a meeting-setting, several topics are discussed and each student has the responsibility to research a certain topic at home, which is later discussed within the group, under supervising of a teacher. The teachers are qualified and experienced in one or more aspects within the industry, and the staff is diverse regarding age, gender and cultural- and professional background. The students come from several countries, which makes the learning exerience very interesting. The campus provides facilities such as a canteen with local and international food, two study landscapes and a library. There are several meeting facilities and the building is very spacious, yet small regarding the amount of students. However, sometimes there are no sufficient study places, especially during exam period. Besides this, there is an international office, supporting international students and students who want to go abroad. Further, there is the IT centre for any problems or questions regarding ICT, and it is possible to acquire school materials. The office of Randstad provides the opportunity to find a (side) job. Further, there is the StuRa, which is a group of students, standing for all the ITM students regarding problems, new and innovative ideas, activities, etc. Several student associations are organizing activities and parties for students, making the student life in Leeuwarden better.

I think the idea to put students from different cultures and backgrounds was a great one. However, I would be a bit critic about the Student Office which took always a long time to make reparations when problems ccured

Getting more international

Overall
It’s located in a rather small city north in The Netherlands. The school has a really good reputation and since it merged with Stenden Hogeschool it’s also a lot bigger and more international. Since we were the European Capital op Culture in 2018, the city exploded in terms of internationalization. Courses are good, all teachers speak fluent English. Area is quite peaceful.

Pros
