Planning on working or studying in Holland? Good choice! The Netherlands is one of the best countries in the world and very appropriate for working or studying. Working or studying at a university abroad is exciting, and most of all: fun! Not only will you expand your knowledge and build up experiences, you will also meet new people from other cultures!
Choose your favourite city
One of the most important steps is to choose the city you want to live in, which is at a pleasant distance from your office or university. In Holland the infrastructure is very well organised, and you can easily travel by train or bus to any place you want. Don’t like travelling? Then it would be a wise decision to live in the city centre or suburbs. If travelling is not a problem for you, then you can just live wherever you want. In big cities like Rotterdam and Amsterdam the rental fees are extremely expensive. So be aware of the high costs if you are low on budget.
Join a Facebook group
Another very handy method in finding a good place to live in the Netherlands, is to get in touch with the locals! There is probably nobody who can tell you better where the best spots in the cities are than the residents of the cities itself! In several Facebook groups they post information about homes that become available and other useful information.
Approach a real estate
Finally, we will advise you to approach a real estate agency in the city you prefer to live in. These people are specialists in finding suitable houses for you, no matter which price range or size you wish your house to have! Make sure you use the key word when you are searching on Google: Real estate agency Den Haag, or real estate Rotterdam. Then everything will be alright.
