Greek Students Flock to Holland

567More than 1,600 Greek students are enrolled in college in The Netherlands, ranking them third behind German and Chinese as the largest grouping. The number has almost tripled since 2006 when there were only 450 Greek students there.
They said they chose Holland because of the many English language programs, the relatively low tuition and the chance for scholarships. They prefer the Polytechnic and the Economic Schools and then the schools of Humanitarian Studies and Fine Arts.
The cost of living in the Netherlands depends of the city of choice with Amsterdam, the capital, being the most expensive. The biggest problem that they face is finding a place to live because of the densely-populated neighborhoods and relative lack of housing.
New students have the support of the Association of Greek Students which provides all the useful information and organizes festivals and other activities. According to the association the cost of living is estimated to be 800-1100 euros a month along with the rent.
