“The Netherlands may appear to be a flat and boring paradise for the terminally modest. Culturally it is an impassable landscape with mountains of strange habits and curious customs. A minefield in which a stranger can only survive with a good guide.”
Hi, my name is Anna and I have been a mentor for international students for years in my hometown Groningen. I created and am the webmaster of this website as I wanted to provide a platform where students (Dutch and international) can come together and talk about studying and life in the Netherlands. Which you can do on the international students forum.
Now of course I also wanted to share some thoughts and knowledge I have about the Netherlands with the international student community. If you are (thinking about) coming to the Netherlands as an international student, or you are already here, I am hoping you find some of the information published here useful.
Please note that I am and this website are not affiliated with any official Dutch organization or the Dutch government. As a result I will ignore private messages or e-mails with information or scholarship requests about studying in the Netherlands. Please use the international students forum to ask your questions.
