    Hi guys.
    Is anyone studying at Tu Delft ?
    If yes, can someone write his opinion about this University?

    Being a non-Dutch, how easy is to get managed to this University?

    Thanks

    I would like to study there, but I don't know how is to be a foreign, and if is easy to be used to study there.
    I'm talking about who cares from others parts of Europe.

    How is the selection?

    Thanks

    Well, I think the Netherlands are far easier to migrate too than say France or Italy for example, because everyone here speaks English very well or at least thinks they do. In another country you'd need to learn the language much sooner.

    About selection, some courses are open to anyone with the right secundary educational background, regardless of what grades you got. You'd get in with a C just as easy as someone with an A*.
    But this doesn't mean the courses are easy. Some have drop-out rates of nearly 50% because people overestimated themselves when applying. Don't let this scare you off though!

    Some courses do have a selection and when they do the selection can be quite tough from what I've heard.

    What do you mean by 'who cares from other parts of Europe?'
    Which course do you want to study and where are you from?

    The majority of people speak english ?
    Really?
    That's a great news.

    Anyway, I'm from Italy, and you already know that here very few people speak english, there aren't many good english teachers.

    I mainly thinking about Tu Delft because it have courses in english, and I didn't found other great universities in Europe that have them.

    'who cares from other parts of Europe?'
    Here I wanted to say " who came from other parts of Europe".

    Yes I've been to Italy and I needed help in the grocery store but people just turned away when I addressed them in English that's why I mentioned Italy.

    Anyway, I don't study there myself yet but I do know it's very international. All books are in English and the people at university can speak it just fine. Only some of the teachers are having trouble with it if they're a bit old and not used to it.

    But if you want to study a course in english, why don't you go to a university in the UK??

    Because they are 5 times more expensive.

    Fair point, but still, a degree from a good UK uni would make up for that

    Do you mean that will have a great value?

    Still don't know, I mean, how many universities in the Uk are better then Tu Delft ?

    Plus there is the Brexit issue.

    Well uni's like Imperial, Cambridge and Oxford are definitely better but Delft is perfectly fine too and a lot of UK uni's are actually worse. You'd have to really look into that.
    About Brexit, you should check with your uni because some of them will see you as a Home student if you apply before Brexit has fully come through.

    Yes, I know that there are a lots of universities behind Tu Delts.
    What I never understood is why Oxford and Cambridge still have their prestige all over the years, and how they manage to keep it.

    I heard there are a lots of Italians that are leaving Uk for this reason.

    Man it’s lit from the research I’ve done. Praying to get in from my performance within the selection procedure.
    Language isn’t a problem due to everyone speaking English. The environment is cozy and prices are descent.
