Course recommendations
I recommend that my university should try to add a dutch introductory course to the curriculum of their international programs for an added advantage of studying in a country with another language and to help eliminate the feeling of a stranger in public places as a result of having a knowledge of the local language.

Course recommendations
As you probably know as an exchange student you are entitled to choose any subjects on languages you speak at any faculties of the University. It is advisable though to ask the lecturer in advance and find out if there are any prerequisites, which you can find at the University Web site. All handbooks are available to buy at the faculty shops. Each subject has its own Web page connected to the University main Internet site. You will find there all information about your teachers, student group, home assignment; further readings as well as transparencies form the lectures if such are available.

Course recommendations
Check the teachers. Ask people about their way of teaching. It is important because courses are divided in small groups and having a good teacher is a main point.

Erasmus students take an English level test. If you are good, they let you choose many more courses than the ones you could choose from your home university.

Get to know the different faculties - then, don't be limited by the school you have enrolled into. Take whatever you want - it's possible!

Personal comments
It was very different from the grading and work system at my home university. While I am accustomed to a steady workload, in Amsterdam there were typically only one or two major assignments given which put a lot more pressure upon the student to keep up with their readings so that they are up to date in class.
