Course recommendations
I was a bit disappointed by the business courses. Instead I took 2 courses at the Social Sciences and Humanities Faculty. Those I enjoyed very much and I learnt a lot about the PRC there!

A bit more structure in there might be helpful. The hardest work had to be done in the end, could have been organized better.

Personal spending habits
Things are much cheaper there, at least when you adapt to local foodhabits for instance. Cooking Western food and buying the ingredients would have cost me a lot. Travelling was surprisingly cheap taken into account distances and so! Prices for drinks in bars were even more expensive than Europe.

Personal comments
Go out for food, don't cook yourself at least if you like the local cuisine! When booking a trip make sure you check prises at different travel agency's, some are not sincere.

Overall level of english is lower than in the Netherlands. At university I have not experienced any problems besides explaining myself more than once towards local students. Concerning local people in shops or restaurants: learn cantonees a.s.a.p. I have not experienced any problems in government institutions.

Personal comments
The campus is really poor housing. You have to share your 7m2 room with someone else and the bathroom with 20 others living at that floor. You do not lay on a mtras but on a sort of wooden shelve. But the apartments that the school arranges are pretty good. Its clean, spacious and everyone has his/her own bedroom and sometimes even their own bathroom.
