Studying in Tilburg (about 90 minutes southeast of Amsterdam) has been great. For a small city that lacks the beauty of many other Dutch cities, Tilburg has a surprisingly good student life. Exchange parties are organised for us at least weekly and there are often other things organised for weekends. Coupled with living on a floor with 16 other exchange students there are very few dull moments. Tilburg has proved to be a perfect city for exchange. Not being a large city, you really get to know the city and don’t feel bad leaving for the weekends to explore the rest of Europe.
