Reasons to (not) recommend an international study experience

  • International students recommend the Netherlands for its great city and social life and for personal and professional growth
  • Students comment less on Personal and professional development, however, they are very positive about it, especially about discovering a new culture and learning a new language
  • In comparison, students find academics more important and of lower level than other international students in Europe
  • International students find social life more important than the average international student in Europe, and mention it more in both a positive and negative context
  • Students find the services provided by the university not as important as other international students in Europe, but they do mention that this category has much room for improvement
