When I made the decision about my master study, the most important fact was the reputation university, not the country or the city. However, the Netherlands is a great country to live in.
A big advantage of living in Tilburg is the location. It is very close to the Belgium border. Moreover, there are cheap flights to all over Europe from Eindhoven airport, and Tilburg is only 40 mins to this airport. Since I am from a large city, it was a disadvantage for me to live in a small city.
Although Tilburg is a small city, the university has more than 10000 students. Therefore, it is usually hard to find and apartment or room in Tilburg. In case anyone is preparing to study in Tilburg, (s)he should start searching for a room as soon as possible.
