Rotterdam vs Maastricht vs Groningen


Hi!

I have been admitted to those universities- Maastricht, Erasmus Rotterdam and Groningen.

I would really need some advices on which one to pick, since I have never been ti the Netherlands and I am not familiar with any of the universities.

For me important would be not only the university, but also its service, accommodation, prices etc.

I would really appreciate it, if you would give me some infos!

Thanks!

Concerning academic criteria, I think it depends on the programs you have been admitted to. As I mentioned for you in another thread, I chose Maastricht for EU law studies.
Living cost should be higher in Rotterdam, as Maastricht and Groningen are smaller cities. In Maastricht I easily found accommodation, single furnished room for 350 euros/month with all the utility taxes included.

Hi!

Thank you for the posts. The LLM in Rotterdam is in International and European Public Law.

How exactly did you find accommodation? Did you search via http://www.maastrichthousing.nl/? How long did it take you?

I am still thinking. At the beginning I wanted to go to England. But studying there is very expensive, that's why Holland turned out to be my choice number 1 :)

I think that Maastricht is the most famous Dutch university, but one cannot be sure until the final decision is taken :)

Well, you can't say it's the most famous, but they have very strict quality standards for universities, so there are no such big gaps between universities like in some other countries. So it's almost impossible to say which university is better, you simply need to compare different programs, curriculums and decide which suits your needs better.
Yes, I found accommodation through that website - I've selected "All Inclusive offer", filled in the application and transfered the deposit - everything took about a week to complete.
