When you move to a different country to study, there are lots of things to arrange. For instance, where will you live, how much are the costs? Visit the practical information site. Read here for more info about how to arrange housing. A student living in the Netherlands needs about € 800 - 1000 a month to cover living expenses, such as housing, food and transportation. This includes insurances – health insurance is mandatory.
