Amsterdam has lots of nice neighbourhoods that are interesting to explore. The city is small enough that you can travel from one end to the other by bicycle - which is the most popular form of transportation in the Netherlands.
In addition to your tuition fees, there will be additional costs associated with living in Amsterdam - such as your rent, insurance, food and study materials.
Amsterdam has an extensive transport system, including trams, buses, trains, metros and ferries. Many students also travel by bicycle, as it's the easiest and cheapest form of transportation in Amsterdam.
Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is a city with a pleasant atmosphere that will make you soon feel at home. Recently, it was ranked as one of the safest cities worldwide and the second safest city in Europe.
