Try going to smaller bike-repair shops more outside the city center. You will find that they often are willing to sell studentbikes for under €100,-. In Groningen I know a shop where you can buy a studentbike for around €75,- and you can return it after your stay and get half of your money back, that is if it is still in good order (similar to when you bought it). Try getting a similar deal. Smaller shops often have cheaper bikes OR know where you can get one. If they do not have any cheap bikes, just ask them if they know where you can buy one.
Here you can find a list of bicycle-shops in Maasticht (website is in Dutch and not all shops listed sell second-hand bikes). Try calling them and ask them if they sell second-hand bikes and for which prices. Then write down a couple and go by them one-by-one.

Private market can indeed be very difficult. You can check if anyone from Maastricht is coming to your University and if you can switch rooms. Or you can post an ad through one of the many room websites I have summed up in the Link Database.
Or, I just found this website, http://www.easykamer.nl/ (which is mostly in English). Although the number of entries are limited, you can always give it a try (free to begin with, until you want to respond).

You probably would like to send a e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your specific question. They know all the possibilities concerning studies and courses. You could, of course, also go to our Links Database and visit all the major Universities and write to them and ask if they have a Telecommunications study/department and if so, how you can get in touch with them.
The pillowfight was a success 🙂 more than 3000 people fighted 🙂
I am happy to see this forum still growing. And I am happy to announce that in the short lifespan (this forum is only 3 months old) Gusty signed up as our 100th member. Congratulations Gusty and everyone who is a member and helping us!! 😀
We will continue to grow in members and in content. Soon more content will added by us. In the meantime, if you have any question or story to tell yourself relating to studying in the Netherlands, do not be shy and use our forum to post it 🙂
Hope to be reading your stuff soon 😉
On April 6th, a large group of students will try to beat the worldrecord of the numbers of people in a pillowfight. The current record is 2773 persons in Dodgeville (US).
The aim is to have at least 3000 students/persons engaged in a pillowfight for at least one minute.
Where: Grote Markt in Groningen
When: April 6th 2005
Time: 17.00h (don’t be late :))
Pillows: The pillows will be there already, however you may bring your own but then it must be at least 50 by 60 centimeters.
Hope to see you there 🙂
UPDATE: I’ve just added the links to grants and scholarships to the Links Database.
Recentely I am getting a lot of e-mails with requests for sponsorship or grants or scholarships. Apparently, the people who are sending me these nice e-mails do not read the text on this website. Because if they did, they would know that I do give out scholarships or grants 🙂 I am, just like you, a poor student trying to survive day-by-day.
However I do knwo some places where you can get more information, so here it is:
[b:2ef5750a27]DELTA Programme [/b:2ef5750a27]
If you possess the Chinese, Indonesian, Taiwanese, or South African nationality.
This programme offers fellowships to Indonesian teachers, government officials and professionals with a Bachelor degree (S1) who wish to obtain a Master degree or take postgraduate courses at a Dutch university.
The Alban Programme financed by the European Commission, awards scholarships to students from 18 Latin American countries for postgraduate studies.
[b:2ef5750a27]The Netherlands Fellowship Programme[/b:2ef5750a27]
The NFP target group consists of mid-career professionals who are already in employment and who are nationals of one of 57 selected countries.
[b:2ef5750a27]The Ford Foundation’s International Fellowships Programme (IFP)[/b:2ef5750a27]
Provides opportunities for advanced study to exceptional individuals who will use this education to become leaders in their respective fields, furthering development in their own countries and greater economic and social justice worldwide.
Programme offers outstanding foreign students an opportunity to study for a period of between three and ten months at a Dutch university or hogeschool (university of professional education) or at one of the eligible research institutes in the Netherlands.
For the [b:2ef5750a27]Socrates and Erasmus Programme[/b:2ef5750a27], please check with your own home-university for more information about your possibilities.
For Dutch students I also advice to check out ‘Het Fondsenboek 2006’ (te bestellen via http://www.walburgpers.nl/ of de reguliere boekhandel) with hunderds of Dutch funds for different purposes, including funds for studying abroad.
I hope this will reduce the number of e-mails I get 😛February 20, 2005 at 1:33 pm in reply to: Looking for a room in Amsterdam from 01.09.2006 – 31.01.2007 #570
I must honestly say that I had never heard of this study. So I looked into it a bit. Unfortunately I suspect the Maharishi university is the only ‘university’ in the Netherlands that is giving this study on this level. I hope you will find the study you are looking for. You might want to contact the Maharishi university or related organisation through http://www.mgcwp.org/maharishiuniversityofworldpeace/
Since you spoke of Leiden, let me assure you that the Netherlands is a really small country. Meaning that no matter where you study in the Netherlands, within a few hours you can basically cross the country with the train and travel around, getting the full experience of the Netherlands.
Hope this helps!
You’ve got mail 🙂
Thank you for your message. First of all I would like to recommend you to our Links Database, section Universities. All Major (public) Dutch Academic Universities are listed here.
Alos, with a quick search I found the following bachelor (full program) which looks like to be in English, however you might want to check this with that University:
Hope this helps 🙂
i have one (a siemens M55) but you will need to replace the battery with a cheap other alternative or recharge the battery every evening. She can have it for €15,-.
I’ve just added a couple of links to the Links Database, referring to websites containing lists of available Master Programmes (and some Bachelor Programmes) in the Netherlands.
