Personal recommendation
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

Final comments
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.

Personal comments
My accommodation was without heating, with rats and without any working furniture. This sounds like it was terrible (and yes, it was, atleast in the beginning) But I have to comment that we were put together in a very special way through we were forced to cooperate and together we were able to work out a plan to make everything work, cultural, language and housing facilities. The situation created an atmosphere of teamwork over the culturalborder and created an experience where we learned to work together. AND that is the best visdom I have learned from the netherlands, to be able to solve problems together with people from different cultures and acctually I really loved it.
