How did you prepare yourself for the academic aspect of your year abroad programme? Tried to choose relevant courses.

Please describe the application process, when you applied, and when you received confirmation:

8 Through SSH, a housing service provided for international and dutch students. What was the average monthly rent? What was included in this cost (e.g. bills, internet, food etc.)? Please give as much detail as possible about the costs associated with your accommodation: I paid between euros/month all inclusive (except food). How early could you move in? Immediately before the semester started and left immediately after the end. Did you have to vacate the premises during the holidays? No How would you rate the accommodation provided? Very Good Please describe the type of accommodation you stayed in, its location and level of comfort. Did you have a single or double room? What were the kitchen and other facilities like? What was or wasn't provided (e.g. bedding, kitchen utensils)? Did you feel that the accommodation represented good value for money? I lived in 2 separate studios over the year, both had their own kitchen and bathroom. THe first was located on the university campus (but out of town) and the second was located on a more central campus. Both were provided with kitchen utensils etc but no bedding. Did you live with local students, or with other foreign students? Were the halls a good place to practice your language skills and interact with local students?

9 I mostly met other internationals in halls and we communicated in English. Would you recommend this accommodation to future students? Is there any other advice you would like to share with future students looking for accommodation in your host town/city? It was very easy to find a place through SSH but they are more expensive than through independent landlords (however, also more reliable). Finance How much money did you need on arrival (e.g. for housing deposits, rent and other start-up costs)? Probably around 1000 euros 1. Cost of Living Rent (per month): euros Bills (electricity, gas, water, internet, phone etc.): 10 euros (phone) Books (overall amount spent on books during your stay): 0 Food (weekly): 40 euros A (simple) meal (in a cafe or restaurant): 7 euros A coffee (in a cafe or bar):

10 2 euros A beer (in a cafe or bar): 2.20 euros A cinema ticket: 9 euros Local travel (weekly): free if using bike! euros if by bus Entertainment (weekly): 20 euros Any other regular costs: In total, how much did you spend per month on average? 800 euros How would you rate the cost of living in your host town/city when compared to London? Cheaper Please give details. Were there certain things which were more expensive than in the UK, and others which were cheaper? Medicines etc were more expensive, but rent and food etc were cheaper than London 2. Working Is supplementing your income through part-time work a viable option? If yes, do you have any advice about what type of work to look for, or where to look? Please give the names of any employers or agencies you worked for, and any newspapers, websites or notice boards you would recommend:

11 I found a job through the university in a research project, but this was by luck. During the introduction week, we were taken to a job agency who could help international students find part time work. Does your host institution help with finding part-time work? yes 3. Banking Did you open a bank account in your host country? If yes, was it easy to open an account? Please describe the process and what documents were needed. Did you have to make a minimum deposit to open the account?, i had set this up before arriving. No minimum deposit. Just required passport and online forms provided by the university. Which bank did you open an account with? Rabobank What type of account did you open? Were there any charges, and was it easy to withdraw money within your host country using this account? Student account - i think there was a charge of 15 euros on opening., it was very easy to use the card and draw out money. Would you recommend opening a local bank account? If so, which bank(s) or account(s) would you recommend? Definitely since no shops in Utrecht accept Visa, so you must rely on drawing out cash if you don't have your own card.

12 General 1. Social Factors (Opportunities and Ease of Meeting People) How much interaction did you have with local students? Quite a lot since my course was a mix between international and dutch students. How much interaction did you have with other international students? A lot - from my course and from my halls of residence. In your experience, what were the best ways of meeting people? Through my course, through ESN activities or through housing. If you were studying in a country where the local language is not English, how often did you speak the local language? Sometimes 2. Mobile Phones Would you recommend getting a mobile phone with a local tariff as well as/instead of your English mobile? Please give details. Are there any mobile providers you would recommend? I used Lebara which gave a free sim card and had free calls to the same network - very expensive to call internationall though! Transport Was local transport good or bad? Please give details of local transport you used: Local buses are ok, but do not run at night. The best way to get around is by bike which is cheap and easy! What was the cost of local transport? Are there any special deals or discounts for students?

13 There are only discounts for Dutch students on the local buses, but it is possible to get off-peak discounts on the trains. Did you travel more widely within your host country or within the region? How easy was it to travel, and was it expensive to do so?, i travelled a lot around the Netherlands and the train network is very good (pretty cheap and easy). Life in your Host Country Please comment on the social life and entertainment in your host city/country, or any other aspects of life there which you would like to share: I enjoyed a busy social life whilst here, mostly with my coursemates, but also with other international friends met through the ESN activities etc. Lots of house parties too. Is there any advice you would give to someone preparing to live in your host city/country? I hope you like beer...and can cycle! Did you experience any problems/difficulties while living in your host city which you would like to share with the Study Abroad Team? n/a Study Abroad - Summary Did you find your year abroad rewarding academically? Please give reasons for your answer: The work was both interesting and challenging, as well as covering a lot that i had not come across in UCL. What's more, i had to learn to make presentations which for me was a personal challenge and now a valued skill!

14 Did you find your year abroad rewarding in non-academic respects? Please give reasons for your answer: It was invlauable to spend this time abroad - it was great both for independence but also for the chance to consider my future career and living choices in a new context. How would you rate your year abroad experience overall? Very good Please give reasons for your answer: I found the host university very welcoming and academically excellent, but more importantly, the people i met here have become very close friends. I have also had the opportunity to develop non-academic skills (in particular photography) which may greatly impact my post-ucl choices. Do you feel that you have developed skills which will be of use to you in future? a) My cultural awareness: Has increased greatly b) My language proficiency: Is the same c) My independence: Has increased greatly d) My self confidence: Has increased greatly e) My intellectual development: Has increased greatly f) My personal development:

15 Has increased greatly g) My ability to make decisions: Has increased greatly h) My ability to explore and create opportunities: Has increased greatly i) My ability to cope with difficult situations: Has increased slightly j) My ability to solve problems: Has increased slightly How would you rate the support you received from your department at UCL during your time abroad? Good Please give details/feedback and suggest any improvements: Sometimes difficult to get hold of my departmental tutor, but otherwise very helpful.
