Personal comments
The language of instruction was English, so I have not had any problems in academic area. Although it was an international program everything in the university and outside the university was Dutch. I find it nonsense but I have started to learn Dutch to overcome this challenge and adopt the environment and culture.

Personal recommendation
The university is good at academic success especially in research area.I think it would be nice if the university would become more international. This is clear because foreign students can not attend any of the events such as conferences, workshops,career fairs because of the language constraints.
