I guess it has been better to accomondate their students and the uni is not bad, they have lower level of teaching than at my uni in sweden so you can read 150%, And they have different wiev of their learning so you will get new and very usefull info for your studdies. And the city of Haague is wonderful and very international, so yes, I can recomend it

They are very interesting in your money keep good relations with your home university so you have a good backup if something happening, they placed us in a ghetto the police told us that we should never go out alone after dark and acctually one police told me "-hey you have to get a gun" (I never did so but it was a very ruff neighbourhood) The best experience was to live together with the international students and together worked out the problems of our bad locations In the house it was 10 different nationalities from all continents, so it was very interesting in the cultural mix this situation created, but don't sign any papers before you have seen the place they offer you to stay in.

To be honest i think that the standards that this uni has are shocking. For eample as mentioned before, the exams, essays are the sort of things that can be written in an hour and without references or books - can easily get away with lifting material off the internet as they don not check and they do not care.

Make sure that you have an isic card it will make things more expensive. Do not come here if you are racist, narrowminded, do not like being perved on as you walk down the street every day.

Expect to read textbooks independently, "theory" is rarely covered in class. Make good use of vast library/computer resources. Interact more with other internationals, don't stick to your home college-mates

The Netherlands is not very big country so you can travel alot because places are near, and is located in the middle of Western Europe so you will have the chances to travel around Europe easily. Knowing Dutch is not neccesary but it´s important.

The most important thing at this University, if you really want to learn, it is to follow every class. If you are following them you will adcquire a very interesting knowledge.

No, I had little expectations and this in itself created a more positive experience for me. Although, I did wish I knew more about the housing costs, as I may have been able to find something less expensive. However, I still rate my housing experience very highly.

It is a nice small university, which allows you to form close friendships with a lot of people. I would recommend getting to know the local students in the student union (Hebos), because they provide more of an insight into Dutch life. Most of all, don't get too stressed about the studies and make sure to have FUN.

This was without a doubt the best experience in my life and I would recommend it to anyone. I am now more culturally aware and have a great interest in learning more about other cultures. I feel it has advanced my career in terms of my adaptation skills and my responsiveness to change. I would recommend going to a place where one can travel and be exposed to a variety of cultures.
