Student life in the Netherlands

If you want to study in the Netherlands and you have already visited the country, you might think that student life is not very different from how students behave in other countries. However, the longer you’ll live in the Netherlands, the more obvious and striking certain traits in student culture will become.

If you are like most international students, when you go to the Netherlands you will start to hang with other international students like you. We call this phase the “international student bubble”.

But if you leave this bubble you will soon discover that Dutch student culture is more than just babbling away in an overcrowded pub while downing 0,25l glasses of Heineken and rhythmically swaying to some form of electronic music.
